POST MUNICH SHOW FINE MINERAL COLLECTION and INVENTORY LIQUIDATION AUCTION (set 1 of 2) - end November 10th, 2016

Ends November 10th, 2016
at 6:30 PM (Central Time Zone)

We work hard to buy multiple collections and new finds, all year round, to flow together into the most diverse set of fine mineral specimens for our customers online. Look for rares, old classics, and many good things hard to find at any price, let alone at auction! This set is one of our "post-event" auctions featuring extra good things which we pulled from show stock or they just did not make it to shelves given booth size constraints!


Some of the highlights from this week’s include:
1. Superb, large Chinese LOLLINGITE combination
2. Striking large Sweetwater Mine CALCITE
3. Classic, old and rare Euorpean and USA specimens
4. Large gemmy SPESSARTINE, Dr. Ed David collection!
5. Superb OKENITE GEODE from old finds, from the Van Tichelen Collection
6. Rare and excellent large White Pine Mine COPPER
