During 40+ years of mineral collecting I've always been a part-time dealer , starting in The Netherlands and getting a bit more serious after moving to Australia in 2005.
I'm slowly winding down my career in IT and focus more and more on minerals.
I deal in minerals that I like myself so I consider my stock to be my collection and I am usually very happy to share the joy with my customers and pass along the minerals and love for them.
Besides presenting a collection available on-line via the website and Facebook, we also have a nice showroom in Point Cook, Victoria, Australia that is open by appointment.
Our contact details:
212 Saltwater promenade
Point Cook, VIC 3030

Visitors to the site can search and explore your minerals, with all the necessary information at their fingertips. Shipping costs are calculated, using your preferred carrier’s rates and PayPal takes care of payment.
We accept payment through Paypal. Our website automatically combines multiple item orders into a single shipment and creates a combined invoice with shipping cost to the address that you provide during checkout.
We do our utmost to pack minerals so that they do not get damaged in transit. All minerals are photographed prior to shipping. Should your minerals arrive in a damaged state please contact us and we will reimburse you immediately.
Your parcel is shipped within 72 hours from receipt of payment using registered airmail. Delivery usually takes two weeks. For expedited shipping, please enquire.
We do our best to accurately capture, classify and document our minerals. We do not process images to an extent where they are no longer realistic. Differences in monitors and ambient light will influence colours and lustre suggested by the photos.
In the unlikely event that you are not happy with your purchase, kindly return the minerals to us within 14 days of receipt and we will refund the full amount, provided that it is in the same condition as originally supplied to you.
