Overlooked Treasures For Sale
Mineral Specimens Personally Recommended by John Betts

Call them what you want: Sleepers, Great Buys, Overlooked. These are minerals that are excellent specimens at reasonable prices. They should have sold quickly. Perhaps the photograph does not adequately describe the beauty of the specimen. Maybe it was added to the site during a slow period and nobody noticed. Perhaps the rarity of the mineral at locality is unappreciated by outsiders. Whatever the reason these are very nice specimens and deserve a second notice. These specimens are personally recommended. You cannot go wrong, there is a full money back guarantee - if you are not delighted with the specimen send it back for a full refund. No questions asked. To purchase mineral specimens, go to the Online order form.
