January 15, 2015  New Arrivals Page 2  has been updated with a suite of specimens from around the world.    A little bit of everything on this one, with my usual emphasis on color...I like pretty rocks!   I was able to acquire several Milpillas mine azurite specimens in miniature to cabinet sizes at relatively cheap (for these) prices now that the price has dropped a bit on specimens.  Also, a large cabinet specimen of andradite from Garnet Hill, Calaveras county, California.  Haven't seen a cabinet sized piece from that locality in ages.  

January 6, 2018.    New Arrivals Page 1  has been updated with a suite of mixed worldwide minerals.  Some Nevada specimens have been posted as well as some esoteric locality pieces.  Focus is on color, with some pretty pictures in this update.  Most specimens in this update are from more recent finds.  

December 14, 2017   New Arrivals Page 4  has been updated with a suite of mixed worldwide minerals from thumbnails to cabinet sizes. . 

November 16, 2017.    New Arrivals Page 3  has  been updated with a suite of mixed worldwide minerals.  Featured are four very nice calcite specimens from the Red Dome mine in Australia.  Emphasis on color in this update as usual.  One odd specimen listed is a wulfenite on plumbogummite pseudo pyromorphite from Yangshuo, China.

  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.
