January 12, 2017.    New Arrivals Page 3  has  been updated with a suite of mixed worldwide mineral specimens.      Some are old timers rarely seen for sale these days. 

December 28, 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.  Featured are a suite of very pretty aragonite specimens from a one time and limited find in the Berryman tunnel, Eureka county, Nevada.  

December 8, 2016.    New Arrivals Page 1  has  been updated with a suite of mixed worldwide mineral specimens, featured are a suite of stolzite pseudo scheelite specimens from the Darwin mine, in California.  Also added are several quite rare minerals such as guanajuatite, and a stibarsen among others.   I updated the Sale Pages, General Stock Page 22, General Stock Page 23, and General Stock Page 24, by giving an additional 5% to 10% off on all the specimens on these pages.  I also added several calcites from around the world, starting at 30% off, and added several smoky/amethyst quartz combos from Petersen mountain, Nevada, starting at 30% off.  . 

November 21, 2016.    New Arrivals Page 4  has been updated with a suite of mixed worldwide minerals in sizes from thumbnail to cabinet.  Featured are several epidote specimens from the Epidote find in Kenya of 2002 which I had stashed away and forgotten about until I was looking through flats and ran across these.  Also in this update are several silver specimens from Europe and China.  



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.
