Now posting....New arrivals from Tucson and a selection of southern Illinois minerals from the Sam & Ann Koster Collection


Attention: There are provenance issues regarding minerals from my Southern Illinois collection.The suite ended with RCL2369*  In particular, those specimens with numbers ranging in the 4000's are absolutely not from my collection. Some RCL numbers were lost during cleaning. However, all specimens will/should have my labels as a back-up. If someone did not receive a label and there is no RCL#, please contact me directly. I will be happy to clarify any provenance and make new labels from my database. Thanks, Ross Lillie

*(RCL2398 is accurate: assigned by Fine Minerals, Int. after cleaning).

Addendum: I am continuing to add minerals to the database to further historical preservation of the district. These newly assigned specimens start at RCL2370. They are photographed, described and labeled and when sold will come with my provenance.
