Hello from Mineral Store, stocking Queensland' largest range of fine minerals and crystals!

Mineral Store Australia allows them to bring a large selection of minerals and finely crystallised specimens, collected over countless years, to the market. Tony has been a past president of the Mineralogical Society of Queensland and is also the current Honorary Curator of the Minerals Heritage Museum located within the Queensland Museum at Southbank in Brisbane and has a wealth of knowledge to share. 
Tony was recognised for his dedication and promotion of mineral collecting and our mineral heritage with an Order of Australia Medal.

Iconic specimens!
In 2020 we purchased a fabulous old specimen to repatriate to Australia! Nickname "Brutus" by the buyer, it is a 43kg jackstraw specimen of cerussite from Broken Hill, NSW, Australia.

Tasmanian Crocoite
In October 2017 we obtained a large quantity of the rare mineral, crocoite, mined in the early 1990s at the famous Adelaide Mine, Dundas, Tasmania by the late Frank Mihajilowitz. This 33cm specimen was our latest delivery!

We Buy Mineral Collections!
Have you a collection of mineral specimens that you wish to dispose of? Do you have a specimen that you want a valuation on? Often a relative passes away and you have no idea what to do with their collection. We can give assistance with valuations, and often purchase collections.
