STAY TUNED!!! ALL AUCTIONS END THURSDAY, OCTOBER 29th!!! * * * EXCITING NEWS!!! * * *We are excited to announce our largest collection acquisition to date - the incredible 28,000 specimen collection of noted Eastcoast collector Chet Lemanski! We are so very proud and honored to be handling this important collection, jointly purchased with Rob Lavinsky of the Arkenstone! Chet has been a lifelong collector of mineral specimens and has contributed greatly to the hobby of mineral collecting and mineralogy. Chet is an administrator for www.mindat.org and the namesake of the mineral Lemanskiite. Chet began building this vast collection in the mid 1960's and continued right up until recent years. The collection consisted mainly of three segments - a vast general collection of worldwide specimens, a large and important Franklin suite, and an impressive fluorescent display. The general collection is remarkably comprehensive with specimens from famous and obscure localities alike, specimens of historic and scientific import, "rare uglies" and aesthetic masterpieces - all ranging in size from micro to huge, museum-sized specimens! Within the general collection are several noteworthy, species specific suites of fluorite, willemite, cassiterite, pyrite and prehnite - each impressive in size and scope! The collection was also rich in diversity, representing over 3,000 species with most of the noteworthy rarities including relevant analytical data!
