Current Auctions

We are proud to present a special auction featuring classics and fine display pieces from the collection of Richard Rossi, an East Coast collector and longtime Fellow and supporter of the Mineralogical Record and the community. This selection includes a very esoteric mix of display specimens with a focus on aesthetic examples of classics, many from older collections as well.

This special auction features items such as:

PENTAGONITE in a protected pocket

OLD ENGLISH BOURNONITE  VALUED over $5000 

a MAJOR KONGSBERG SILVER, and a SWEET HOME RHODOCHROSITE VALUED over $5000 

EPIDOTE from Alaska from the Smithsonian collection

SMITHSONITES And more….!

Continuing with our special themed auctions we have a selection of higher-end specimens this week with $249 reserve bids. You'll find a wonderful mix of fine display specimens, plus rarities and gem crystals from contemporary and classic localities around the world!! Check out everything and be sure to pick up some good quality pieces for bargain prices.

Continuing with our series of gem auctions, we are offering a selection of fine quality gemstones that we acquired from the inventory of a respected wholesaler with decades of experience in the gem business.

 

You will find a wonderful mix of well-known, rare, unique and collector quality gems with reserve bids starting as low as $10.  Pay close attention to the quality in these auctions, as all of the stones are well-cut (many have unique custom cuts) and are not your typical "jewelry store" material.   There are many gems in these auctions that one rarely sees on the market, and even the more common material is better than what you'll find in a lot of other venues.
