Session Description

Mineral specimens as collectors’ items have been a focus of a very small group of people for centuries. However, globalization and broadened interest for unusual items have led to an increase in the number of serious mineral collectors. Natural mineral and gem materials are beautiful, exciting, and highly collectable yet their value determinants can be complicated to understand. Whether purchasing, collecting, most importantly appraising, a logical approach to value is essential to reaching a reasonable result. Considering these materials are also too frequently encountered in the context of investment fraud, an independent specialist should be consulted for valuing mineral specimens, especially for large and rare examples.
