NEWS:

9-22-15   The Paypal logo on the bottom of the New Arrivals and General Stock Pages is not working.  I'm working on it.  In order to make payment try:   jcrowley@crystal-mine.com    when you go to Paypal.  Also, the search function is not working and so far I haven't figured out how to make it work.  pages are alphabetical...see below.  

 

November 19, 2021.    New Arrivals Page 1 has been updated with a suite of mixed world wide specimens.  There are some significant pieces in this update.    Featured is a very fine large smithsonite from Tsumeb;  An older outstanding rhodochrosite from the Potosi mine and other nice pieces.  

October 25, 2021.    New Arrivals Page 4 has been updated with a suite of mixed specimens from around the world.  Some colorful specimens in this one.   There are several somewhat higher end pieces (as in more expensive) in this update.   

October 9, 2021  New Arrivals Page 3 has been updated with a suite of Ojuela mine  cuprian austinites I recently acquired.  This is the second half of the batch acquired.    

September 21, 2021.    New Arrivals Page 2   has  been updated with a suite of mixed specimens.  I recently acquired a small collection of minerals, several of which date prior to the 20th century, including an old Calico, California colemanite that was collected in the 1950's.  The owners old labels were pretty mixed up, and some of them obviously in error, for instance an old Morenci azurite was labeled as Shilu mine, China.   

 

We have adjusted the site to contain more pages under General Stock.  There are now 25 General Stock Pages.   There are New Arrivals Pages 1, 2, 3, & 4, which are the same.    In General Stock there is General Stock page 1, "A thru Ay", General Stock page 2 is "Azurite", General Stock page 3 is "B", General Stock page 4 is "C", General Stock page 5 is "D", General Stock page 6 is "E", General Stock page 7 is "F and G", General Stock Page 8 is "H, I, J, K", General Stock page 9 is "L and M", General Stock page 10 is "N and O", General Stock page 11 is "P through Py", General Stock page 12 is "Pyromorphite", General Stock page 13 is "Q", General Stock page 14 is "R", General Stock page 15 is "S", General Stock page 16 is "T", General Stock page 17 is "U and V", General Stock page 18 is "W", General Stock page 19 is "X, Y, and Z", General Stock page 20 is the "Nevada" page, General Stock page 21 is "Thumbnail" size specimens at 40% off original price, General Stock Page 22 is the first "Sale Page", General Stock page 23 is the 2nd "Sale Page".  General Stock page 24 is the 3rd "Sale Page".   General Stock Page 25 is now dedicated  to specimens over $300.     General Stock Page 26 is a bit of a misnomer.  I'm reserving it for photos from my collection, photos of interesting field trips and finds, and the like.   More of an information/fun page.   

December 2000
  We are a mineral dealership located in Reno, Nevada.  We are ardent field collectors and have been dealing in and collecting minerals for many years.   You can see us in person every year at the following shows:   San Francisco show in August and the Tucson show in February. 

I have been a mineral collector since I was taken underground at the Clayton Silver mine in Idaho at the ripe old age of 9, by my grandfather, who worked there as a foreman.  My first look at the mine's working  face of solid sparkling galena had me hooked on minerals from that moment on.  Since then I went on to get my Masters' degree in Geology with a focus on economics and mineralogy.    My favorite mineral is pyromorphite.  I'm always on the lookout for pyromorphite specimens.  I am particularly interested in Canadian specimens.
