As we have been collecting for 50 years we have an extraordinary range of specimens, both from Australia and many other countries.

This covers in excess of 600 different mineral species, including a number from type localities. Click here to download a PDF list of our available minerals.

Other collectors are looking for attractive cabinet specimens, and we have many of these, from classic Australian and overseas localities.

Rather than listing all specimens, which would not be possible, we encourage collectors to enquire about items in which they may be interested.

Fossils

Llama Blue

While the fossil collection in not large there are interesting and varied specimens from many countries. We have some of the worlds oldest fossils, as well as Archaeocyathina, Ammonites, Trilobites, Crinoids, Fish, Insects, Plants, Echinoids, Shells, Stromatolites, Starfish and many more.

Our special interest is opalised fossils found on several of the Australian Opal fields. While various species of shells are the most common, there are opalised belemnites, some bones and wood, all preserved in either precious opal,  potch or common opal.

If you would like a list of the fossils we have available, please email us and we can provide you with one.

Shells

With many years of collecting in Papua New Guinea and by purchase of collections, we have now a very broad selection particularly of Indo-pacific and Australian species. Of interest is our good selection of Papua New Guinea Land snails, many of them endemic to very localised regions. For the collector we do have lists of shells available from several of the different families. Eg cowries, cones, volutes landsnails.

If you would like a list of our available shells, please email us and we will provide it for you.
