Most common questions from callers:

How do I purchase from your site? Use my online order form. I will then confirm via email after calculting the postage and insurance.
Can you identify my mineral for me? I cannot identify a mineral from photographs or from a description over the telephone. I suggest searching for "Mineral Club Directory" to find a local mineral club in your area. They will help you identify your mineral.
Do you perform appraisals for estates or charitable donations? Yes, I have performed many appraisals based on my 28+ year experience selling 70,000+ mineral specimens. I charge $1500/day plus travel expenses with a two day minimum (1 day on site, 1 day appraisal documentation) and provide written appraisal, plus IRS Form 8283.
