New Asia & Eastern Europe Update 25 August 2020

25 August 2020

This week we have moved east towards the continent of Asia and have an awesome selection of specimens for you to feast on. Today's update includes a wonderful cornflower to indigo-blue Tourmaline from Pakistan, with an internal lustre of metallic blue foil; from Russia, a delightful group of Quartz crystals encrusted with delicate Chlorite crystals and pale lemon Calcites and also, a sumptuous Fluorite stalactite of lilac cubic crystals encrusted is spikey crystals of apricot tinged Calcite from China. Other specimens include a suite of sulphides that include Galena, Betekhtinite, Chalcocite and Djurleite; a nicely developed pale lemon-cream Sapphire crystal and an excellently priced gemmy pale lime green Heliodor from the famous Volodarsk-Volynskii gem pegmatite deposit in the Ukraine. Please join us for a fabulous mineralogical tour of Asia and Eastern Europe!

Weekend viewings at our showroom in Somerset are currently available for customers, BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.

Following the recent changes in the government guidelines we have started to receive visitors again. To allow customers the chance to view our extensive range of fine minerals we offer them the chance to visit our showroom during more convenient ‘out of work’ hours. We are allowing just one appointment at a time in the showroom, but this can be for a party of up to 6 people. If you would like to pay us a visit please contact to arrange an appointment.

We are currently offering an additional service that enables you, as our customer, to contact us via with your mineral wish list to enhance your current collection, but are unable to find the right specimens on our website.  We have 1000's of specimens in our general stock that do not appear online.  

We will endeavour to respond to all email/telephone enquires within 24 hours during weekdays, however at the weekend it might take us a little longer to respond.
