A small company based in Scotland and a collector of minerals since I was a child (an interest sparked by my mother who herself collected during her childhood in mineral-rich South Africa).
Mineral collecting is a hobby that connects people around the globe together and allows the sharing of Earth's natural art, with every specimen making a unique mark in a collection, be it a specimen from a classic location, or an exciting new find.
I hope the minerals that I offer, can bring their new 'custodian' the joy that I myself feel when collecting.
Feel free to browse the collection (which I will continue to frequently update) for the specimen that feels right for you, and know that when you make a purchase, you will be dealing with an approachable and friendly company that cares a great deal about each and every customer and their complete satisfaction, and most importantly, enjoy!

We accept payment through Paypal. Our website automatically combines multiple item orders into a single shipment and creates a combined invoice with shipping cost to the address that you provide during checkout.
We do our utmost to pack minerals so that they do not get damaged in transit. All minerals are photographed prior to shipping. Should your minerals arrive in a damaged state please contact us and we will reimburse you immediately.
Your parcel is shipped within 72 hours from receipt of payment using Royal Mail International. Delivery usually takes two weeks. For expedited shipping, please enquire.
We do our best to accurately capture, classify and document our minerals. We do not process images to an extent where they are no longer realistic. Differences in monitors and ambient light will influence colours and lustre suggested by the photos.
In the unlikely event that you are not happy with your purchase, kindly return the minerals to us within 14 days of receipt and we will refund the full amount, provided that it is in the same condition as originally supplied to you.
