PLATINUM MEMBERSHIP

Would you like the opportunity to add a high quality, reasonably-priced mineral specimen to your collection each month? And to read a highly detailed write-up on the mineral? If so, our Platinum membership might be an ideal fit for you! Here's how it works:

  1. Each month, we'll send you an Email with photos, sizes and prices on the mineral we're featuring that month.
  2. You read the Email and tell us what size/price you would like to order. Or, if you already have the mineral or are not interested in it, you let us know and we won't send you anything. But we'll still send you our in-depth write-up on the featured mineral so you can read up on it!
  3. Simple as that! You'll receive excellent quality specimens of only the minerals you choose. And you'll receive our monthly mineral write-up each month, as long as you purchase $100 worth of minerals each year.

Here is the information on our August 2011 featured mineral, Dolomite from the Shangbao Pyrite mine, Leiyang County, Hengyang Prefecture, Hunan Province, China. It's been quite a remarkable run of minerals we've featured these last few months, and now for a change, we have available some of those extra large specimens for Club members who love the big pieces!

Our Dolomite crystallizes as light, creamy pink rhombohedral crystals with curved faces--the photos below give you an idea of their beauty. This curvature is due to the way the dolomite crystallizes, as explained in the write-up.

This was one of the easier Emails to put together, as all the specimens are of the same habit--the only real difference is the size! This gave us more time to put together the attached Offer sheet with some additional/alternative minerals for you to peruse, including several very rare minerals. Click to view August Offer Sheet

As always, we have Gold-level specimens available for $26.50. Gold-level specimens are on matrix about 2.5" by 1.5" to 3" by 2".

Group 1 Dolomite specimens are on matrix about 3" by 2.5" to 4" by 3" with an ample coverage of well-formed dolomite crystals, as seen in the photo below. They are available for $30, $35, $40 and $45, according to size and quality. We have about 50 of these.

Group 2 Dolomite specimens are on larger matrix, about 4" by 4" to 5" by 5" and slightly larger, also with an ample coverage of well-formed dolomite crystals, as seen in the photo below. They are available for $55, $65, and $75, according to size and quality. We have about 20 of these.

Group 3 Dolomite specimens are on even larger matrix, about 6" to 8" across and and 5" to 6" high, large showy pieces for $110, $135, $140, $160, and $175, according to size and crystal quality/color. We have about ten of these.

Group 4 Dolomite specimens are for those who want some thing really big, a "decorator" style piece--over 10" by 10" for $125 and $150; and over 1 foot across and about 1 foot high for $275. We have about six of these.

Please let me know if you need any further information, or would like to order a Dolomite specimen and/or something from the Offer Sheet. As always, if you can indicate a second choice in the Group you select, that would be appreciated. and please let me know if you wish to pass on this month's mineral, so that I know you received the Email OK. Thanks so much in advance!

Richard

Most Platinum-size specimens will be in the $30--$100 price range, with the option to purchase a larger/better piece for more, depending on the size/quality/rarity/newness of the find of the monthly mineral. Some Platinum Club members have indicated to us a size range and/or price range they would prefer each month, and we are happy to work with them on it.

Platinum members always have the option of obtaining a regular Gold-level or Silver-level specimen at the regular price, or of passing on that month's mineral. Of course, all Platinum members get the same write-up, newsletter, etc., as other members, even in months when they pass on the specimen.
