My Collection

My Collection

Some photo's of my Mineral Collection. Over 3000 unique pieces of everything you can think of from Africa, with a few exotics from elsewhere. I have no criteria on collection specimens...if its natural, rare, unusual, unique, beautiful, included, preferably natural or interestingly polished, excessively beautiful...then it stays. As many of our customers will know, I don't always keep the best or biggest piece, but I don't do too badly either!! We do Paleo anthropology talks and Mineralogy tours at our humble Museum sometimes (in "spare" time!) The collection is out on show, as it seems greedy to keep this in our house and not share the joy of it with others. (plus we would have to build a couple more rooms onto the house!). There is everything in this collection from classic cabinet Tsumeb to Meteorites, all of the Kalahari Manganese Fields, a cross section of all of the interesting Madagascar Minerals, Congo Copper Belt Minerals, Fossils from all over, over 300 stone tools, Minerals of which there are either single occurrences or a handful of them, many rare locations all over Central and Southern Africa and some beautiful and unusual spheres, slices, polished pieces and a vast array of beautiful Natural Pieces,
