One of the world’s finest mineral specimens ... a sculptural masterpiece! This specimen was collected by Bryan Lees in 1992. It was then sold to American music composer and Academy Award/Emmy Award Winner, James Horner. It was previously on display in the Houston Museum of Natural Science.
Mineral collections are as unique as the individuals building the collections. There is no single “template” for building a fine mineral collection. Fundamentally, the collection needs to bring joy to its owner.
World-class mineral collections come in many different forms. There are superb collections with less than 50 spectacular pieces, while other world-class collections have thousands of pieces. Collections can be general or worldwide in scope, they can focus on a specific mineral species, size, mine, state, or country. The variations between fine mineral collections are seemingly endless.
