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 a coprolite from Hanging Rock, Nundle, NSW. This fossil poo is possibly from the extinct Australian megafauna. One thing I do know about it is that its a little uncommon in style, for the location, there is some variety thru out the deposit, and even different replacement agents (i.e. Ironstone) but smooth slender specimens such as this make up only about 1 percent of the specimens found! Collected by and from the collection of Norman and Jocine Robinson.

For sale is a rare specimen of smithsonite crystals (and good ones at that) from BHP mine, Broken Hill, NSW. The amazing thing about this is the lack of damage to the crystals and that there are two different form, dogtooth scalenohedral, with destinct surface features, and the bi-pyrimidal double terminated, with smooth crystal faces. This a hard to obtain and historic specimen, with the crystals sitting on massive coronadite. Ex George Stacey collection.

For sale is a glorious water clear drusy quartz over malachite with minor chrysocolla, from Mt Glorious mine, Cloncurry, Qld. First I have to say that this is one specimen that really needs sunlight to have its full beauty appreciated. Second, all the things that appear as whitish spots, are actually flashes from the ultra bright drusy quartz! Third virtually all the specimen from this mine, that appear on U.S. web sites claim the green mineral is actually pseudomalachite, as it under quartz, it is virtually impossible to prove, one way or the other! Minor contacts on the periphery, otherwise pristine! Way, way better in person.

For sale is a stunning specimen of drusy quartz over malachite, plus probably a couple of other minerals. (There are some spheres on the left that are a pink yellow color and there are a couple of snow white spheres) Its very difficult to catch the true sparkling nature of this specimen, but all the small spots that look white in color are actually the flashing drusy quartz,(which is water clear) A beautiful specimen with nice contrasting matrix, this is exquisite under magnification!!! This is better than the pics indicate.

For sale is an emerald in matrix from Curlew mine, Marble Bar, W.Aust. This specimen comes from an obscure part of this mines history, probably in the 1980s.There is probably about thirty emerald crystals or part crystals in this rock. The matrix is quartz, the back of the specimen (not photographed) is black biotite. The emerald crystals are medium green, translucent, and segmented. Rare old material, just never seen today in the market. This is a significant and historic Australian emerald specimen, both in size, display and rarity! Of the few specimens I have ever seen from this old locality, this is by far the largest, and richest. Ex John Rankin collection.

For sale is an epidote with quartz from Mt Isa district, Qld. First thing is the specimen is way way better than the pic indicate. The color is a slightly darker green than shown. The pics do not capture the overall flashing and sparkling nature of this piece! The fascinating things about this is that there is a fully terminated top face, there has been no contact of the display face. The box work style epidote is litter with small well formed quartz crystals. The contrasting reddish matrix is also sweet. Also scatter about are some small gemmy epidote crystals, probably better seen by magnification. Personally I just love the specimen.
