A few months back, I was asked to start a thread on another forum on what my experience as a mineral dealer has been like. The catalyst for it was a bunch of posts by people complaining about the high cost of mineral specimens for sale at shows.
I am going to post the 4 installments of the resulting series of articles that I wrote here for your enjoyment (and hopefully to jump-start some activity here in our new group).
In order to make sense, the order in which they should be read is:
TUCSON: Another perspective
So ya wanna be a mineral dealer, eh? - Part 1
So ya wanna be a mineral dealer, eh? - Part 2
So ya wanna be a mineral dealer, eh? - Part 3
I hope you enjoy the tale...
