I have been an avid collector for about fifteen years now, and have had this company for the last 11 years. Over the years, I have built up quite an inventory of specimens from around the world. I have specimens ranging from exceptional, one-of-a-kind, specimens for the collector to reference pieces for the beginning collector.

Featured Item: Beryl var. Aquamarine with Muscovite
Location: Nagar, Gilgit District, Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan
Size: H: 3.5 cm ,W: 3.5 cm ,D: 3 cm
Item #: 917015
Comments: An unusual flattened aquamarine crystal which has another iron-stained beryl along the back side which gives the front of the specimen a yellowish cast in the photos.

I do, however, need to finance my obsession, so I offer these treasures to you at fair prices so that I can continue the journey and the adventure.
This way we all win…you get great treasures and I get to keep adventuring to get them.
