WEEKLY MINERAL & GEM AUCTIONS!

Filter By
Current Auctions

George Elling, lifelong mineral collector and former computer sector stock analyst for Deutschbank, has collected the classics for decades. 

He majored in Economics at Allegheny College but has always been a long time mineral enthusiast. During a recent visit to Allegheny, Mr. Elling also made a donation for the Geology Department to purchase new museum quality mineral cases and donated new mineral specimens that are highlights of the displays. The new mineral displays are an overwhelming hit – be sure to visit Alden Hall and see them if you live nearby! Although the large collection encompassed all old classics, particularly USA pieces, Elling has focused his mineral collection on the world famous Franklin, New Jersey locality. It remains one of the most significant in that focus. 

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.
