Many long-time visitors have noticed I am now providing videos of some of
the mineral posted every week. Each video is also posted on my Youtube channel:
nycmnrls. And there is a link on each video to the item web page on this
As time goes, more and more minerals will be posted with videos.
But it is not uncommon for mineral to only be on my site for 5 minutes. Then
when it sells the item is removed from the galleries. So videos will only
be added if the mineral has been available for at least a month.
"Just an FYI. Received my 7 specimen mineral order today for the very reasonable
price of $240, after your multi specimen discount. That is a little more
than $30 per specimen on average. While these were all small miniatures,
I thought the quality was excellent from a lack of damage perspective, uniqueness
for location crystal morphology perspective. (and the price was great for
that). Any beginner or moderate-skilled collector would greatly benefit from
the addition of these specimens. I consider myself an advanced collector,
and this suite really made me happy and hit the mark with me for what they
are in size. I have spent very much more $$$ on high quality
larger specimens. These in their own way, in my opinion, hold their own in
the collection for reasons mentioned. Maybe I am over the top on this, but
I very much like what I received. Thanks. Dan M."
Customer satisfaction is my primary goal. I pledge:
New minerals will be added to this site every week.
All minerals offered will be naturally crystallized specimens - no fakes,
no dyes, no irradiation, no crystals glued on matrix.
Only the exact item pictured on the site will be shipped - no substitutes.
Photographs will accurately represent each item - no exaggeration, enhancement
or retouching flaws.
Mineral species and localities will be accurately listed on labels with each
All items will be shipped via US Postal Service, usually the next business
day after the order is finalized.
Each mineral will be individually wrapped and carefully packaged to prevent
damage during shipping.
All historic labeling, if available, will be included with each mineral.
Returns are gladly accepted. No questions asked, no explanation necessary.
All customer information will be kept confidential and never shared or sold.
I will continue to freely share my knowledge with others and contribute
to the study and appreciation of minerals.
All mineral specimens have a lifetime guarantee: if the mineral species was
incorrectly identified, I will refund the cost of the original purchase &
shipping, the cost return shipping and the cost for testing.
