October 20, 2016 New Arrivals Page 2  has been updated with a suite of specimens from around the world.  These are mostly cabinet to miniature sized specimens. 

September 30, 2016.    New Arrivals Page 1  has  been updated with a suite of mixed worldwide mineral specimens.  The 1st several specimens are mostly rosasite from a location in Nevada that I thought I had sold out; below that are a mix of worldwide minerals, with several older Tsumeb specimens, as well as a few azurite specimens from the Sepon mine in Laos.

September 19, 2016.    New Arrivals Page 4  has been updated with a suite of mixed worldwide minerals in sizes from thumbnail to cabinet.  Featured are a suite of quartz casts after scalenohedral calcite from Crystal Cave in Colorado... these are really pretty specimens with bright drusy quartz crystals faithfully showing the scalenohedral form of the now missing calcite crystals.

August 28, 2016.    New Arrivals Page 3  has  been updated with a suite of mixed worldwide mineral specimens.      



April 20, 2016.  The Sale Pages, General Stock Page 23 and Page 24 have had 37 more specimens added to them with a beginning sale price of 30% off; All of the sale pages, General Stock Pages 22, 23, and 24 have had the vast majority of specimens lowered another 5%.  These are anywhere from 35% to 80% off.     While going through flats of inventory I found three flats of benitoite and neptunite specimens that have been overlooked for several years.  I have placed them on to New Arrivals Pages 1 and 4.   I priced these fairly low I think, in order to move them out.

  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.
