Mineral Identification

We offer free rock/mineral identification, but recommend bringing only one rock/mineral at a time. Otherwise, you may be charged a fee for identification. Identification is based on the following:

Purchasing Agent

We regularly purchase specific items as per our customers’ request. If the primitive, antique, or vintage item is not available in our shop, we will do our best to locate your “special request” item. We also purchase (by appointment) mineral collections, primitives, antiques, and vintage items our customers wish to sell.  Approximate market values are based on currently sold items from our shop and/or the internet. Please have a value of the item you wish to sell in mind prior to your visit, and understand that we cannot pay retail prices for anything we plan to resell.

Estate & Item Valuation

We perform unofficial (no license for written appraisals) estate and item valuations by appointment. Please contact: Linda Barton Cronoble phone: 720-338-6201 or email:  lbarton1611@gmail.com.
