About MineralAuctions.com

MineralAuctions.com began as a fine mineral inventory liquidation outlet, but has evolved over the years into the premier online mineral auction destination. Our knowledgeable and passionate team at The Arkenstone (iRocks.com) has over 150 years of combined mineral collecting knowledge and has handled over 100,000 mineral specimens and over 20,000 gemstones through our auctions alone.

We are pleased to offer a large variety of fine mineral specimens at auction, including selections from many important and historic collections, rare species and localities, and more, all while maintaining low starting bids – often just $10 – and no added buyer’s fees (minus sales tax and shipping costs, when applicable).

Additionally, we are proud of our many partnerships with non-profit organizations and institutions, such as the Mineralogical Record, Rocks and Minerals, mindat, The Tucson Gem and Mineral Society, The Rice Museum of Rocks and Minerals, and more! These partnerships via benefit auctions serve as important fundraising opportunities for these organizations, and provide excellent value to our auction customers by featuring important specimens, rare ephemera, and exciting experiences (such as dig site trips, private museum tours, and more). 

We deeply appreciate your support and hope you will come along with us as MineralAuctions.com continues to evolve in new and exciting ways!
