We are excited to showcase specimens from the collection of Gary Weaver, who specialized in minerals of Mexico and the Southwest, and also built suites of Utah and Peruvian minerals. Please watch our regular auctions for more material from this longtime personal mineral collection, and this will also be the first of two Special Mineral Collection Auctions with very interesting unusual pieces and classics from the collection.


Continuing with our special themed auctions we have a selection of higher-end minerals this week with $499 & $999 reserve bids.  Most of the items in this auction are valued at least at $2,000 and range up to $5,000 retail!  You'll find a great mix of fine quality specimens from new and contemporary discoveries plus classics and showy display specimens!  Check them out and pick up some good pieces for bargain prices.
