June 7, 2024.    New Arrivals Page 4 has been updated with a suite of mixed world wide minerals.  Featured is a top quality Spessartine from Pakistan, a nifty titanite from Imilchil, Morocco, and a nice chrome cerussite from Tasmania.  In addition are several specimens of albite with epidote from the Chuck Trantham collection, that he collected from Plumas county, California quite a few years ago. 

May 24, 2024  New Arrivals Page 3 is a mix of worldwide minerals.  Featured is a very rare Gallagher mine vanadinite from Arizona, a cute vesuvianite from Pakistan, a blue smithsonite from the relatively new finds at M'Fouti, Bouenza Dept. Republic of the Congo. 

May 5, 2024.    New Arrivals Page 2  Has been updated with a suite of mixed world wide minerals.  Mostly thumbnails and miniatures in this update, along with a couple of cabinet sized pieces.  

April 26, 2024. New Arrivals Page 1,  has been updated with an assortment of world wide minerals.   Most of the pieces in this update are from the collection I acquired 2 years ago.  Some of the specimens in that collection had no labels, or vague labels, so I just guessed the location on some of them, on the others I didn't specify any location.  Featured are a nice San Andres pyromorphite, and a really nice arsenopyrite from Panasqueira, with somewhat larger than normal brilliant crystals.

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.
