Profile Information

When did you begin collecting minerals (approximately)?
December 1, 1968
How do you build your mineral collection?
Buy
Do you have any special interests? If so, please tell us what they are.
I used to collect minerals from mine dumps and quarry spoil heaps during the 1970s in the UK and Spain - dragging my parents from one remote location to another. Many of my best specimens were of flourite - especially those from the mines of the Pennine Hills in England.

Flourite is still my passion - I dont think it can be rivalled in terms of variety of colour and beauty, especially when found with lead minerals such as barite and galena.

Unfortunately, due to health reasons I am no longer able to collect specimens myself these days (to be frank there are so few location left) and restrict my efforts to purchasing hand-sized specimens.
Do you sell mineral specimens?
Yes
