ANTIQUE MINERALS FOR SALE
From The
BOB OLSON COLLECTION

A few years ago we purchased a collection of antique minerals from the collection of Bob Olson. Bob had purchased the collection himself a few years ealier from the estate of Robert Chisholm , a collector from the 1930's and 40's. The specimens were housed in hand built depression era cabinets and were "loosely" cataloged. Each specimen filled a compartment within the cabinets and all of them rested on top of their acompannying labels. After much time cleaning the pieces and properly preserving all of the old labels  we are finally ready to offer some of the collection for sale here. These are all very affordable antique specimens, many from old classic localities, and there are many more specimens available then are listed, so if you have any questions or special requests about the collection, please feel free to shoot us an email at earthquest@volcano.net.  Thanks for looking! Jake & Dana.
