|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.

Be sure to check out our other pages showing the types of crystals,
minerals and gemstones that we have for sale using the navigation
|While we've had Moldavite before, it was usually just a few small pieces. This year we
have much more Moldavite specimens - including a couple that are large and really nice!
|Click any photo to enlarge. Some will
|This year we have some really nice BLUE CALCITE in
different sizes. I've recently put out some new pieces.
|We picjked up some unusual PINK OPAL and YELLOW OPAL as part of a large mineral estate collection. This
is unusual material that isn't usually available commercially. This opal dates to the mid-1960's.
|We also have some nice CITRINE CRYSTALS for sale at a great price!
|Back in 2012 Rogerly Daylight Fluorescent Fluorite Crystals could be bought wholesale. These crystals are GREEN under indoor artificial
light and the fluoresce BLUE in sunlight. This is the strangest thing to see in person. The crystals react to the UV waves in sunlight to
fluoresce or glow in broad daylight! The blue color is especially odd because if is glowing the color (as opposed to reflecting or
transmitting that color). It stands to reason that if it fluoresces strongly in sunlight that it would be react extra-strong to a black light.
These fluoresce vividly under a blacklight in addition to fluorescing in daylight. The Rogerly Mine in Weardale, England , closed down a
few years ago and specimens are not seen for sale too often these days. These have been in storage from where I had bought them
years ago. These are called "daylight fluorescent" or "Color Change" fluorite since they change colors depending on lighting.
|We specialize in Jackson's Crossroads Amethyst Crystals (sometimes abbreviated to JXR) from Wilkes County, Georgia.
Years ago I bought the property when it was timber / pulpwood land. I started mining the property and I was the first one to ever operate heavy
equipment at the site. After a period of time I sold the property to do other projects. The Mineral Gallery acts as a Mine Direct source of Jackson's
Crossroads Amethyst Crystals, specimens, facet rough and cut stones.
We have inexpensive $15 specimens and really nice specimens in the $30 to $200 range in stock on any given day. If you're looking for a more
expensive specimen please message me via the contact page.
The photos show just a few of the many specimens that were on the shelf when these photos were taken on July 9, 2019. I do make sure that there is
always a good selection to choose from.
|In addition to our Rock Shop in
McDonough, Georgia we also set up at
the Grassy Creek Gem Show in
Spruce Pine, North Carolina.
