Current Auctions

We are honored to present a special auction set of specimens from the incredible historic locality of Tsumeb, from our collection purchases over the last decade.
Look for a huge variety of Tsumeb classics  from the late 1800s through the 1970s. 
Enjoy!


We have a great selection this week, featuring plenty of attractive, fine quality, classic, contemporary, rare and unusual specimens.  Look for new discoveries that we picked up at shows or direct from the source. We also have plenty of pieces from various collections that we've purchased over the last year or so.  You might even find the occasional fossil, lapidary or gem item from time to time.   Look here for the not so typical mineral specimens along with plenty of your favorites.  We don't just offer the "standard 20 species", but an eclectic mix of specimens that appeal to everybody!
