May 3, 2016- Mixed Minerals! An assortment of mixed minerals from around the world.





March 28, 2016- Three New (or recent) Finds! An update containing specimens from three recent finds. 1) An exciting new find of Chinese autunite 2) Specimens from an incredible pocket of pyrite from Huanzala and 3) Scheelite with Stolzite from Peru.





March 28, 2016- Clearance Minerals! A selection of nearly 100 specimens, including a number of reduced priced items from the main galleries. All but a few are priced under $100, many under $60 (New specimens have stock numbers beginning with CTC and are on first TWO pages)





3/4/2016- New Diplay Aids I have added two new products to the display aids section-- 1.5 inch beveled bases and larger versions of the acrylic display easels. If you collect large cabinets, I strongly recommend the easels-- I use them at shows for all my larger specimens, and they seem to work much better with large pieces than any other off-the-shelf display aids I have tried.





February 29, 2016- Tucson 2016! An assortment of minerals from the Tucson Show.





2/29/2016- Clearance Minerals! A selection of over 70 specimens, all but 1 under $100 and almost half under $60. (New specimens have stock numbers beginning with CWC and are on first TWO pages)





January 16, 2016- MADAGASCAR! I haven't updated the site for a while, but I have not been idle! This page contains selections from a recent trip to Madagascar, including a spectacular new find of beryl and some new spray-like tourmalines. I am busy preparing material for the Tucson Show (I will be in room 242 at the Hotel Tucson City Center) but as always, I like to offer my favorite pieces to online visitors first.





November 20, 2015- Mixed Minerals! A group of mixed specimens from around the world, from Michigan silvers and Ohio fluorites, to a Gabonese rhodochrosite and a couple more Chinese plumbogummites.





November 20, 2015- Clearance Minerals! A selection of nearly 80 specimens, all but 3 under $100 and over half under $60. (New specimens have stock numbers beginning with CQC and are on first TWO pages)





October 21, 2015- Idaho and a little Tsumeb A selection of specimens from Idaho, including some older examples of hard to find material dating to the 1960's. There are also several Tsumeb specimens in this update.





October 21, 2015- Clearance Minerals! A selection of nearly 90 specimens, all but 4 under $100 and almost half under $60. (New specimens have stock numbers beginning with CSC and are on first TWO pages)

August 8, 2015- Mixed Minerals! A very mixed group of specimens with some very unusual items (even by my standards) ranging from 120+ year old Michigan specimens and Mexican classics, to phosphates and carbonates from Curacao, and even a Chinese autunite.

May 10, 2015- Plumbogummite ps. Pyromorphite! A selection of specimens from a recent find of plumbogummite after pyromorphite, encompassing pretty much all the habits from the occurrence. In my opinion, this is one of the major finds of the last year, and certainly the most exciting thing to come from China for some time.

Xuebaoding pieces, though there are a few Pakistani and other items mixed in as well. I have not included any Inner Mongolian pieces in this update-- the bulk of the material comes from finds made in past years.





January 13, 2015- Midwest, Burma, and Mixed A page containing a mix of pieces from the American Midwest, including some old Tri-State material and quarry calcites, as well as a selection of minerals from Mogok. There are a few other random things thrown in as well.





December 28, 2014- MASAGASCAR! The website has been dormant for several weeks, but I've been busy searching for new specimens.

September 16, 2014- NEW WEBSITE! After a long hiatus, Khyber Minerals is back online with a new website that retains the same old feel, but that is way more functional. All items are now searchable (by chemical class, color, species, size, etc) and in a database, meaning that pages are up to date. If you haven't already, feel free to play around with the new features- there are many interesting items that were once buried on the website though which are now discoverable! I've been continuously buying even while the updates languished, so expect new updates at greater frequency in the coming weeks!
