Mineral Store was kicked off as a business in October 2012. Tony
identified a niche for the supply of fine minerals and crystals
in the Queensland market and set up the business to cater both
for discerning collectors, and just anyone who can admire the
beauty and perfection of great mineral specimens.
Although we do not trade from
an actual shopfront, we welcome visitors by prior appointment to
view our substantial stock of minerals and crystals from around
Since opening, we have gained a
great reputation amongst a loyal group of collectors and crystal
admirers. We have our own Facebook
page where you can catch up on the latest news on shows we
attend as well as new material on sale.
Tony regularly posts to
Crystals & Minerals facebook page, adding images and
regularly imparting his knowledge to the group. Say hello there,
or else visit our own Facebook page.
We regularly travel within
Australia and overseas to purchase mineral stock for sale. In the
past year we attended both the Tucson USA and Munich Germany mineral shows, and
purchased thousands of specimens and shipped over half a tonne of high-quality pieces back to Australia.
We have very reasonable prices on all our pieces, and with quality
to suit any collector. Our prices range from $10 to thousands of
dollars for high quality pieces, but we stock
specimens for every
collectors taste, in a large price range.
Fluorite specimen is from the Rogerley Mine, UK. This
particular specimen was sold by Mineral
Store but can be viewed in the Minerals
Heritage Museum mineral display located within the Queensland
Museum at Southbank. (The specimen was kindly
donated in memory of the late Ted Wearden, a long time member
of the Mineralogical
Society of Queensland)
Our mineral showroom. A large
set of mineral drawers from the old University of Queensland
Geological Museum dominates our office. We have thousands of
specimens to choose from in a large price range and quality!
