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.

Collectors frequently incorporate fine mineral specimens into their home or office décor as an art collector would display their acquired works of art.

Displaying and enjoying these natural treasures of the Earth can enrich one’s life in a myriad of ways.

Many advanced collectors view their mineral collections as a store of wealth and a part of their overall assets.

That is to say, mineral specimens are not unlike fine art, gemstones, silver and gold coins, and other fine collectibles.

To create a world-class mineral collection, it helps to have a deep desire to learn about fine minerals and a willingness to glean useful information from a wide variety of sources.

Let us help you fall in love with fine minerals.
