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.  

 

September 17, 2022.    New Arrivals Page 1 has been updated with a suite of mixed minerals.

September 13, 2022.    New Arrivals Page 4 has been updated with a suite of hematite-epidote-quartz-andradite specimens from the Peacock mine, north of Cuprum, Adams county, Idaho.  These were collected in July 2009.   The area these came from was a rather oxidized zone of quite vuggy skarn mineralization, with bright lustrous, thin hematite blades the dominant mineral present.  Not sure I would call these display specimens but they are certainly interesting locality pieces.  The hematite blades vary from small crystal plates, to blades on a few pieces exceeding 5 cm across.  

September 2, 2022  New Arrivals Page 3 has been updated with a suite of mixed worldwide specimens.  Mostly thumbnails and miniatures in this group.  Some rare older pieces are here, and a few unusual localities. 

August 25, 2022.    New Arrivals Page 2   has  been updated with a suite of mixed specimens from across the world.    Several higher end pieces in this update. 

 

 

 

 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.  

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.
