Minerals for beginners, educators, “pretty rock” pickers, and species / locality collectors.
Rather than list inventory that comes and goes, I’m providing general information about what’s available.
I have been selling minerals from Steve Garza since 2017 (it was a monstrously large collection). In 2023, I starting selling Bob Robinson’s huge collection. It contains minerals and fossils. Most of Bob’s collection is hard to access due to how it’s stored. I will be going through it for at least five more years!
Specimens vary from yard rock to what’s called “museum size” – giant specimens in better condition / quality than yard rock to tiny thumbnail and micromount size that needs a microscope to be seen well.
