"Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature.  It will never fail you."

Frank Lloyd Wright

Crystallized mineral specimens are nature’s most breathtaking inorganic “works of art.”

With their infinite colors, shapes, and forms, they are the Rembrandts, Picassos, and Michelangelos of the natural world.

Mineral crystals come in an unending variety of vivid colors, geometric shapes, and aesthetic crystal arrangements.

Every piece is one-of-a-kind ‘limited edition’ … unique as a fingerprint, with no two mineral specimens ever quite the same.

The Dragon

GOLD
Colorado Quartz Mine, Mariposa County, California

This specimen is regarded by many as the world’s most aesthetic crystallized gold. It was prepared and sold by Collector’s Edge to American music composer James Horner in 1998 (Horner wrote the musical scores for Titanic, Avatar, Braveheart). This specimen is now on public display at the Houston Museum of Natural Science.

Amazingly, these natural sculptures are not cut, polished, or modified in any way by man.

Our mineral specimens are entirely the result of natural processes occurring on Earth for billions of years.

Appreciating fine mineral specimens is a very personal experience and evaluating these natural art objects is subjective on many levels. Included among the key drivers in selecting mineral specimens for one’s collection is that the specimens should be aesthetically appealing and/or intellectually stimulating.

We believe that a collector should “fall in love” with the pieces they acquire.

Equally important, however, is that every specimen selected for one’s personal mineral collection exhibit outstanding quality and possess strong market desirability. These characteristics are far more objective and the basis of our proprietary mineral specimen assessment.

Over the past 35 years, the Collector’s Edge has evaluated several hundred thousand mineral specimens for their quality and market desirability. Based on that experience, we have developed a sound methodology for objectively evaluating the specimens we recommend to our clients.

The at Collector’s Edge pledges to present only superb mineral specimens which score highly in both our “Quality” and “Market Desirability” assessments.

Further, we offer to share with you our 35 years of experience in the mineral market and the utility of our mineral specimen evaluation method.
