Museum Rock and Mineral Specimens
Specimens shown on this page are rare finds and unique items. The designation "Museum Specimen" here does
not mean that these specimens are perfect. The designation here means that these specimens are better quality or
more unique or rare than many specimens we have seen in Rock and Mineral Museums in our travels across
America. Several specimens we have sold on this site were purchased by Museums located in the United States
and even some in Australia.

All items listed on this page are of course for sale, but these pieces are going to be listed at a higher price and are
geared towards the more discriminating designer or collector Many of our "Museum Specimens" have been
purchased by commercial and residential designers as accent pieces or conversational art pieces.

We will be listing specimens from SpiritRock Shop and Ernie's Rock Shop.
Linda at Ernie's Rock Shop will be listing special pieces she and her dad collected over the years on their buying
trips to Rock and Mineral Shows and buying trips to South America.

Shop. There are also several other less expensive pieces of these
rare art carvings being offered on
