Our large range of minerals reflects the fascination and the desire to preserve our unique Australian material.
Our quest is to further the knowledge and understanding of minerals in the wider community.

We have been exhibiting and selling fine Australian minerals since 1990, featuring rare collectors specimen from Broken Hill NSW, Torrington, Hillgrove and other important mines in Australia.

For sale is an interesting quartz group from Torrington. As the pics show the crystal group is white quartz on one side and pink (hematite inclustion) on the other. Excellent condition (the smallest of small chatter on one tip) great size , this came from the Reg Taylor collection (Mullimbimby) so it must have been collected sometime before the mid 1970s. Ex Alan Arnold . This better than the pics indicate.

For sale is a slice of quartz, I think rhyolite, from somewhere in Australia. We obtained this specimen from the Newcastle Lapidary Club, and it had been part of an old Australian collection.

For sale is a ruby in granite quartz matrix fromj the 1978 excavation at Mistral mine, Mt Brady. This find is and was the only commercial ruby production that has happened in Australia, so it has some significance. These were once quite abundant, but as the years go these are becoming scarce. This is a reasonable representative specimen, with fine fluorescence.

For sale is a very decent Austalian rutile, from May Down, Qld. The main crystal while it has a cleave towards the rear is still very presentable, actually its a a very good crystal from Australia, where rutile in good crystals is uncommon. There are quite a few other rutile crystals covering the rear. The positioning and luster of the main crystal and the contrasting colors of the matrix, work very well!

For sale is a polished triangle of tiger eye from the famous Marra Mamba location W.Aust, the weight is an impressive 270gms. As can be seen from the pics (I hope, tiger eye is notoriously hard to picture) this specimen has good movement thru out, with just enough small veins of silver hematite to give variation and definition to the tiger eye. Posished on two of three sides, this is the width of the vein thick, with natural top and bottom! Nice, material often suggested to be the worlds finest tiger eye!
