Minerals from the Collection of Rock Currier (1940-2015)

Below are the minerals recently acquired from the collection of Rock Currier while on my buying trip to Tucson. Rock was one of the biggest mineral dealers of the past 50 years, traveling the world to acquire new finds to sell through his wholesale mineral business, Jewel Tunnel Imports. As he acquired minerals for resale he would set aside specimens for his private collection that he found personally interesting. A portion of his collection was being dispersed in Tucson. All of Rock Currier's minerals that I acquired are here at this one listing. No others are in reserve.
