INDIVIDUAL SPECIMENS

An Order Form Must Be Used When Ordering Specimens From This List

Our specimens are hand broken as opposed to being crushed to size. That helps in keeping cleavage and fracture characteristics intact. Specimens are available in four standard sizes:

  • small (.0.50"-0.75" chips) -    only available in 30 piece packs
  • medium (0.75"-1.25") -         only available in10 piece packs
  • large (1.25"-1.75") -              only available in 10 piece packs
  • lab specimens (2.0"x3.0" ) -  individual specimens in a labeled box

We generally have access to 350-400 different rocks and minerals at any one time.

PLEASE NOTE All specimens listed here are special order items. They are broken to size and packaged only after your order is received. Be assured that we will prepare and ship your order as quickly as possible but
PLEASE ALLOW A MINIMUM 4 WEEKS FOR DELIVERY. CALL US FOR DETAILS.

If you don't see what you want - ASK - it may be available.

The following list shows the price per pack for the small, medium and large sizes and the price for a single, boxed lab specimen. When ordering, please include the name of the specimen in the "Description" column, price per Pack in the "Price Ea." column, number of Packs ordered in the "Quantity" column, and the total price in the "Amount" column of the order form. Thanks.
