Welcome to the website of Colorado Gem and Mineral Co. We offer mineral specimens and gems in all price ranges, especially those affordable to most people. This is a one man company so please try to use the shopping cart or email for ordering unless you need to call by phone. We might be gone on a buying trip or working in the studio, we do get our messages. Due to the one of a kind nature of our mineral specimens, please wait for confirmation on the availability of the items ordered before paying Please wait for confirmation of your order, in case an item was just sold. Often we may have more in stock and we will send pictures.
We specialize in Gem Minerals, Quartz, and especially Amethyst. Other gems we carry include Opal and Tourmaline. New finds include Amethyst from Guerrero and Vera Cruz Mexico, and Tata, Morocco. Faden Quartz from South Waziristan, a Tribal Area in Pakistan. We consider Faden Quartz to be an amazing demonstration of piezo-electric properties utilized during the growth of these complicated yet aesthetic formations almost unrecognizable from normal habits of Quartz.
New from the Federally Administered Tribal Areas, Pakistan we have a large shipment of high-end Faden Quartz, with many rare specimens including groups with scattered Brookite crystals. New crystal habit of Epidote from Baluchistan, Pakistan, hundreds of crystals in stock-wholesale inquiries for quantity invited.
