The Adelaide Mining Company

The historic Adelaide Mine located near Dundas in Tasmania, world famous for its beautiful crocoite specimens, has now been purchased from its owner of over 30 years, Frank Mihajlowits, by recently established enterprise, The Adelaide Mining Company Pty Ltd (TAMC for short). TAMC was created with the main aim of mining Tasmanian mineral specimens and then marketing these internationally. As well as the crocoite for which the mine is most renowned, TAMC will also be searching for the other related minerals which can be found at this location, these include dundasite, cerussite (plain and chrome), phosgenite and embolite, just to name a few.

A large number of good crocoite specimens have already been recovered during the early work carried out.  These specimens have been comprised of a wide assortment of varying types, with crocoite found in many different colours, crystal habits and formations.  One type of particular note being specimens that feature crocoite along with gibbsite, exhibiting multiple generations of growth in intricate tree like structures.

In addition to those minerals mined by itself, TAMC is also actively seeking out fine Tasmanian (and other Australian) mineral specimens, by either trade, purchase or to sell on consignment, in order to market them to the rest of the mineral collecting world.

The Arkenstone

What do I collect? Chinese Minerals, which you can see on display at the University of Arizona, Tucson campus, on display until December 2013

What do we do in "real life?" In mid-2000, I finished (FINALLY!) my thesis to complete graduate studies for a PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics. Dealing with the mechanisms of control of gene expression by nuclear receptors (estrogen, vitamin A, vitamin D, thyroid hormone receptors, etc...). I earned my doctoral degree at the University of California-San Diego, which is what brought an Ohio boy this far West in the first place. Despite conflict between rocks and biology, biology won out at some point and I decided to pursue the PhD and perhaps go into academia.

With the advent of the internet, however, I changed my mind and, given the chance, I am now pursuing the minerals FULLtime and then some(obviously!).

I was one of the first websites to begin selling minerals on the net, and I think that the internet has lent new life and excitement to this hobby that I have loved since childhood. It is a pleasure to have taken part in this change, and I thank my friends and customers for their support!

Featured Item: Painite and Ruby

The Arkenstone Featured Item

Location: Kyauk-pyat-thet, Mogok, Burma

Size: 4 x 3.5 x 3 cm

Item: OB14C-31

Comments: The Guinness Book of World Records has described Painite as THE rarest gem mineral, and therefore Painite is considered one of the "Holy Grail" of rare minerals. It was named after its discoverer, British gemologist Arthur Charles Davy Pain. Discovered in Burma in the early 1950''s, from 1956 until 1979 only three crystals of this hexagonal mineral were known to exist for many years. This deep red, glassy crystal is an astounding 2.2 cm long, with superb luster. It is very difficult to find specimens that even exceed a few millimeters in length! This one is surrounded by a harem of dozens upon dozens of gemmy pink-red Rubies by association. This is from a small pocket found in literally strip-mining a mountain there around 2000-2002. This crystal has exceptional luster and form. Aesthetic matrix pieces were very rare, although single crystals came in abundance for the first and last time. In context of the finds, this is a superlative, important piece that is as sexy and display-worthy as they get.

Arrowwood Minerals

Arrowwood Minerals is a "no frills" website developed to offer the best value in quality mineral specimens from my personal collection. I am downsizing my collection and have several hundred fine specimens, as well as several hundred additional specimens acquired at major shows and from exchanges and purchases from other collectors and dealer friends.

I don't have fancy graphics or a neat shopping cart / checkout feature, but I do have many minerals from locales no longer producing, in quality that is often very difficult to find anymore. Compare the aesthetics, quality and price to those of some of the high priced, big name dealers, and you will find that my offerings are second to none.

This is a new website and is pretty much unknown, so I plan on adding specimens every few weeks to get things up and running. I do not plan on leaving "SOLD" minerals on the site for more than a few days after they are sold. There are plenty of folks that do not have high speed connections and downloading a lot of sold specimens irks people. If you are looking for anything in particular, send me an email with your wants and I'll see if I have anything for you. Most of my collection consists of display quality miniatures and small cab specimens. I am a collector of high quality cerussite, and will trade or purchase if you have anything I need.

Featured Item: Azurite

Arrowwood Minerals

Location: Milpillas Mine, Cananea Dist., Sonora, Mexico

Size: 3.5 x 3 x 2 cm

    Chuck's Rocks

    I founded ChucksRocks.com in 2007 as an extension of my love for rocks and minerals.

    Early in 2007, I purchased a small piece of property in Teller County, Colorado. The property is known as the Sleeping Princess Mine and has produced beautiful amazonite and smoky quartz specimens, along with several other pegmatite minerals. The property is near Crystal Peak, and is located in an area known for producing very fine specimens.

    I am a geologist and mining engineer, and I work at a mine in Virginia. This online business is really just a way to help pay for my hobby and give me an avenue to "share" some of the great finds from the Sleeping Princess property.

    You will find some great Colorado minerals on this site as well as several other specimens. I've picked up here and there.

    Browse and enjoy!

    Aerolite Meteorites

    Presenting the photography and writing of science author and meteorite hunter Geoffrey Notkin

    I have been hunting for meteorites since 1994, traversing the hostile Atacama Desert in Chile, crossing Siberia and the Arctic Circle by helicopter, and traveling many thousands of miles across the United States and other countries in search of these elusive rocks â?? messengers from deep space and the beginning of time. My adventures regularly appear in print in Meteorite magazine and will be featured in a new meteorite book to be published in 2007. My work has also appeared in Rock & Gem, Geotimes, Lapidary Journal, Seed, Meteoryt (Poland), Reader's Digest, Tucson Showguide, TIMA (Japan), and many other national and international publications.

    Aerolite Meteorites offers a select number of exceptional meteorites for sale on this site. Sales help fund future meteorite hunting expeditions which, in turn generate new research and published works. All meteorite specimens on this site are unconditionally guaranteed to be 100% authentic rocks from outer space, and every specimen comes with an Aerolite.org identification label.

    Alpine Mineral Company

    Like a lot of people who got interested in rocks at an early age, I completely forgot about them for many years, first when I discovered girls, and after rediscovering rocks, when I discovered I couldn't afford the ones I wanted. After a few years of college and chasing the Grateful Dead, in 1989 I married a Jane of my own (nice name, Jane...) and actually got her halfway up Mount Antero on our honeymoon (until she reminded me that Aquamarine was not what that trip was about).

    Around 1990, I began gathering specimens for resale in the retail store I owned. I made a number of connections through ads, the internet, and going to shows, many of whom have become friends over the years. As time has progressed, I've narrowed my focus to Alpine and Gem Pegmatite minerals - the rocks that I find the most fascinating and the ones I could never afford as a kid.

    I've been continuing the visits to rock shows ever since,and I've enjoyed getting to know many talented rock delaers and miners. And that leads to today I'm ready to start cutting loose some of the collection.

You can see some of the specimens in my collection by clicking the JV's Collection link above or below.

    I created this website, not only to offer specimens for sale, but also as an information source for benitoite and the minerals that are found at Benitoite Gem mine. When I dream at night I dream of blue triangles! I really like this mineral a lot!

    I do not deal in cut gemstones so if you are looking for that kind of benitoite you'll have to go elsewhere. The thought of flaking a crystal of this rare species off matrix and chopping it up is, to me at least, the equivalent of crashing a porsche into a tree for kicks. You can go to my pal's site Steve Perry Gem's - I refer to him as Steve's Chop Shop - for faceted benitoite.

    Brazilian Minerals

    For 30 years I taught mineralogy in several Brazilian universities, always seeking to give a practical vision. I passed from laboratories classes to field classes leading the students to the states of Minas Gerais, Bahia and Espirito Santo, showing them the largest Brazilian minerals resources. I created a circle of friendship among the miners, prospectors and small regional merchants and I formed my private collection, nowadays my collection consist of some thousands pieces. Upon a visit several websites I realize that many interesting samples are not offered to the public. I learned from my studies that the old collectors can be interested on these minerals and the beginners can find materials at low cost with a great esthetic value. Thinking about that I organized this web-site to offer you pieces that are not available in any other web-site.

    The advantages are two fold. One, you end up with a specimen that is more esthetically pleasing to the eye and two, you increase the saleability of the piece.
