November 17, 2015 New Arrivals Page 1  has  been updated with a suite of azurite specimens from the Touissit mine in Morocco.  These are from the early 1990's find.  I was going through the mineral flats in storage and ran across these.  I tried to price them fairly low.  Also a couple of Bunker Hill pyromorphites from the 1980's find at that mine in Idaho at the bottom of the page. 

November 12, 2015.   New Arrivals Page 4  has  been updated with a mix of specimens from around the world.   A lot of color in this one.  Featured are a red wulfenite from China, a really nice adamite form Ojuela mine, also a rosasite of better quality from the Ojuela mine, as well as other colorful specimens. 

November 2, 2015.    New Arrivals Page 3  has  been updated with a selection of mixed minerals from around the world.  A little of everything in this update. A fine Peruvian bournonite in classic cogwheel form is featured.   Also a boleite from Baja California. 

October 22, 2015 New Arrivals Page 2  has been updated with a suite of specimens from around the world.  These are mostly small cabinet to thumbnail specimens in this update.

  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 Denver, Colorado in September.

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.
