Hi everyone! For anyone in the Santa Fe area I'm going to be part of an open studio tour tomorrow Saturday and Sunday called the Baca Bash in the Baca Railyard Arts District where my private office and showroom is located.

The next Mineral Collective Flat and Parcel sale is happening Monday!!!!! New bonus incentives. ✺✺✺✺ IT GOES DOWN 7 PM PST JULY 9TH!!!✺✺✺✺✺
☆Attention noble collectors and resellers☆ Hello everyone, some of you may know me, I'm sure many don't. I'm Louis and run The Mineral Collective, a collector of 24 years and dealer the past several of quality mineral specimens. In that span I've built a substantial back stock, so my question is who would be interested in flats for resale of mixed minerals? Each flat would be between 100-500 dollars and in all cases a margin of the pieces retail would pay for the entire flat. If interested ask to be on my list or tagged when they are ready and I look forward to helping you thrive in the mineral business. ☆New bonus incentives TBA!
