Many of you know me as Fossillocator on twitter, but I'm also a mineral locator. I wrote the book 50 State Fossils and have an upcoming book on 50 State Gems and Minerals. I decided to start a mineral-of-the-month club to help people build their mineral collections at home. I will write up and include educational information with every specimen to help people learn more about the history of minerals and gemstones. 

Currently only shipping to the US only.
