September 30, 2015 New Arrivals Page 1  has  been updated with a suite of specimens obtained at the Denver mineral show earlier this month.  There are some really neat specimens in this update.  I was fortunate enough to obtain a nice suite of bright yellow mimetite from the find in the spring of 2013 at the Ojuela mine and featured (rather expensively) in several dealers offerings.  These have great luster/sparkle and for the most part are undamaged.   

September 1, 2015.   New Arrivals Page 4  has  been updated with a mix of specimens from around the world.   I also added more sale specimens to the sale pages (General Stock Page 22 and 23).   These start at 30% off.  Most of the others have been reduced an additional 5%.   Most of the Petersen mountain quartz specimens on General Stock Page 20 have been reduced from $5 to $100 each.   

August 1, 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. 

June 27, 2015 New Arrivals Page 2  has been updated with a suite of specimens from around the world.  These are mostly miniatures and 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.
