All the mineral galleries are very easy to view, simply by clicking on the links in the 'Gallery' boxes / Images or from the drop down menus above.

Enjoy perusing the galleries and click on the Buy buttons to add items to your cart and checkout.

Not everything makes it onto the website, so ASK ME if you have a particular request ( like FLUORITE for instance ) and I will be happy to source those individual mineral requests for you.

Firstly, let me introduce myself. My name is Colleen Thomson, and I am based 50 miles North of London, England, in the lovely County of Buckinghamshire.

I have been an avid mineral collector for the best part of 25 years, and my house is in imminent danger of imploding under the weight of rocks! I may yet be killed by a rockfall in my own lounge one day.

Let me just point out that this is not my main business - I already have a full time job slaving over a hot hairdryer.

The website came about because I felt the need to 'recycle' some of my collection, and because it will hopefully provide me with funds to upgrade some of my specimens. A hopeless rock addict to the last!

As many of my regulars will know, I am also delighted to support the Greenlaws Mining Project Team, who are exploring; mapping and recording their finds in this Lead Mine that closed in 1897. I will try to post regular updates on the project.

Enjoy perusing the galleries and I am sure there will be a treasure waiting for you to re home amongst the many eye catching minerals we have available.

. If you do not see anything on the site you like - just ask, I may not have gotten around to photographing it yet!
