You are on the "MARCH - 2020" page.
Be sure to check out all of the SHOP pages
|Helpful navigation tips for our site:
REFRESH: We update frequently so be sure to refresh your browser to see any
TIME STAMP: On the upper left there is usually a date and time showing when
the page was created or updated.
CHECK BOTTOM OF PAGE: If you see a recent date, that indicates something
new is on the page and often it will be added to the BOTTOM OF THE PAGE.
(that's because it is much easier to simply add it to the bottom as compared to
moving dozens of photos and text boxes to make room at the top of a page).
ENLARGE PHOTOS: Almost all photos will expand when you click on them.
Those that have a plus sign when you hover your cursor over the photo can be
enlarged even further.
YELLOW LINKS: Links are almost always in YELLOW unless I just happen to
miss doing that. Otherwise they will be the standard blue color.
SITE MAP: It's your friend! I've been adding pages to this site for years and it
has become a monster. But, it is a manageable monster. It's easy to get lost
and confused and the site map will likely help you find your way back home.
Look for site map links on the upper right of most pages. I've also added it to
most navigation bars as well as the 'go to' drop-down menu.
"GO TO": Almost every page has a 'go to' drop down menu with a link to home,
the site map, and most of my other presences on the web such as ebay, flickr,
twitter, zazzle, etc.
|This new page shows the newly stocked items in March.
We have thousands of different minerals and crystals so be sure
to check out the pages using the navigation bar above.
|We've added more Charoite!
Super nice and priced at $8 for small
pieces and $14 for the larger ones.
|We've added more Paint Rock
Carnelian agate that we dig near
Huntsville, Alabama. The piece shown
below is gem grade and could be cut
|Shown below is a "Peridot Lava Bomb".
Lava bombs are chunks of lava ejected by a volcano. The
site at Kilbourne Hole, New Mexico has Peridot in the bombs.
This one is from the Donna Bailey Estate Collection and was
collected by them in 1967. I currently have just this one left
and it was put on the shelves March 13, 2020.
Since we buy out large old collections we have all sorts of
things that you usually don't see for sale.
|We have lots of rutile crystals for sale
from Graves Mountain. This particular
one has pyrophyllite on the back. It
also has a nice pyrophyllite spray.
Rutile is hard to photograph so this
isn't the best picture.
|Back in 2004 I bought a property in Wilkes County that came to be known as the
Jackson's Crossroads Amethyst mine. When I bought the property no one had ever
dug with machinery there. I immediately brought large heavy equipment out and
began to dig in earnest. We keep the shop stocked with nice Jackson's Crossroads
Amethyst Crystals. We have a specimen for every budget! Shown here are the
smaller affordable specimens that we stocked just this week. We do stock nicer
ones as well as faceted stones and cutting rough.
If you have specific requests just message me via the contact page or email me at
the email address at the bottom of this page.
|We've added more Botryoidal Hematie, AKA
"Kidney Ore". These are from the Irhoud Mine in
Morocco. We have choice single crystal
specimens as well as a bin full of small
