Genuine Montana Agate Beads
Treasures from Montana is in business to serve the discriminating collector and gift-Montana Agate Unique Hand-Crafted Beargiver. We are located in Billings, Montana on the Yellowstone River. All of our Agate and Petrified Rock was collected in Montana. We love our offerings and hope that you will too. Most of the products we offer are already discontinued and/or were only made in very small batches (some items are the only one ever made). So if you see something you like - get it while the getting is good, chances are it will not be offered again at any price.

Wanted: Petrified Wood Round Beads
Greetings everyone. I'm tearing the internet apart looking for approximately 30 10-12 mm round beads, made of petrified wood, sourced from as close to Mount Rainier as possible. My sister lost her husband in a climbing accident last month, and has asked me to make her a Tibetan meditation bracelet, or mala. I thought that, since they were married and honeymooned on Mt Rainier, if I could get stone beads from as close to there as possible... yeah. You see where I'm going with this. Needed ASAP. Thanks for your time.

Rare Howardite rough, aka
We are liquidating our collection of Howardite lapidary rough. We have pieces weighing less than a pound and also weighing up to 54 pounds that were purchased out of an old collection. This is the very rare "Rattlesnake Jasper" that was said to be mined in northern Nevada many decades ago. See our website for photos and a shop on our website, and we also frequently offer pieces at auction and liquidation prices on ebay. We have links from our website. We can also be seen in Quartzsite AZ in January 2016. This stuff is rare and sells fast, and we have searched many collections and haven't come across any more in almost a year, so when it's gone it's gone, get yours while you can!

Lambina and Mintibie Kingstones, and Mintitie Airport Plate
I have quite a bit of Mintibie Airport plate that I purchased back in the 1990's that I would like to sell. I was an opal dealer back then and still have most of my higher grade stock left, having sold most of the less expensive rough. I also have about eight kingstones in Lambina and Mintibie rough suitable for cabbing and/or carving. These would be sold in their lots and not single stones unless a kingstone. Most of the kingstones are Lambina. The largest Lambina crystal being the brightest I have seen. I also have a large Lambina that should cut a number of exceptional Blacks. I can send amateur photos if I have a serious inquiry. I can also provide weights of lots and the kingstones and accurate descriptions. If you wish to personally view this collection I will require a deposit of $100.00 to set up an appointment. This will be applied to the sale price if in excess of $1500.00. Otherwise it will be forfeited. I also some cut blacks if buyer interested.

I also have over 40 petrified logs that were collected in the 60's and 70's. These came off Jim Gray property and were collected by my parents. They are whole logs from about 8" diameter up to 25" diameter and range from as short as 6" to about 20" in length. These are high quality logs from just outside the forest. I estimate total weight is around 5,000 to 6,000 pounds. $9,000 for all. I will not sell one or two at a time. If someone wants half of it or more, we can talk. Buyer must pick up - or make their own arrangements for pick up and delivery.

I imported these molars from Amsterdam and just got a shipment in when Ebay changed their policy about Ivory. This was about 8 years ago. I boxed and stored them, but now need the money and the room. The average cost per tooth is $233.00, in the right venue they can easily sell for double or triple that. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. Mike 970-779-0069 Grand Junction, Colorado

Smithsonian Grade Wulfenite Museum Piece San Francisco Mine
You are looking at a monster of a piece of Wulfenite.The images are not magnified as typical images of this mineral are. This piece is measured in 1+Feet rather than inches. You are viewing Smithsonian quality. material, some clusters and hundreds of clear crystals on the matrix. This item is for local pickup, payment method to be discussed between us. Classic Wulfenite/Mimetite combination specimens from the San Francisco Mine only came out in the 1970s and in the early 1990s. The piece is heading to pristine - no surprise given the fragility and age of these - but it is pretty close. There are so many perfect crystals available for viewing within this piece that overall, its just a huge piece literally covered with wulfenite. A piece this large for sale is usually not found on ebay. This overall massive piece has good dimensionality, and fine aesthetics, and tons of actual geometrically perfect crystals. Barite is also present. Cerro Prieto, Cucurpe, Sonora, Mexico. Transparent, lustrous orange-yellow windowpane Wulfenite from one of the world's best localities for the species. What is so striking about this piece, other than it's size, is the depth and richness of its color. The photography here is stock and unaltered other than cropping to emphasize different areas of the piece. A gold mine initially, then a gold-silver-molybdenum mine. Owned by Anaconda (1934). Started in the late 1800's and closed 1912. Reopened mid 1980's. Produced 720 tons ore/day (1909). Workings were 1,100 feet (350 meters) deep. Known for excellent wulfenite crystals. This piece was originally purchased from the original Wright's Rock Shop in Arkansas when it was in existence. Minerals Species: Wulfenite. Location of mineral deposit: San Francisco Mine, Cerro Prieto, north of Cucurpe, Sonora, Mexico. Description: Platy yellow interconnected wulfenite crystals with matrix attached. The wulfenite crystals are translucent and have lustrous crystal faces.

The Original Bismuth Skulls!
We started with a vision to create something out of bismuth. After a bit of brainstorming and some inspiration, we decided to create Bismuth Skulls! Our expectation of what we were going make has proven to be more difficult than we had anticipated. We initially thought it would be as simple as melting down the bismuth, and pouring it… of boy were we wrong… With over a dozen attempts, we were finally able to produce a skull that had crystals in it!

To learn about these templates, go to YOUTUBE then type in new cabochon templates or new lapidary templates and you will see a short video about them. There are 13 pages in the set. Each sheet is 8 1/2 " x11" hole punched for a three ring binder. The material is very heavy duty Lexan. 100% satisfaction guaranteed. Only $100.00 prepaid to the lower 48. International orders slightly more. My contact information is in the video.

Our planet has many amazing treasures that are hidden, in many cases, just beneath our feet. Almost every country in the world has been able to unearth unique specimens specific to their locale, and the earth’s bounty from much of the world will be on display and available for sale at the show. Vendors from across the region will be offering unique and interesting mineral specimens, crystals, gemstones, jewelry, findings, beads, fossils, and cutting material at competitive prices. Many of our artisans have created original jewelry designs, and our gem and mineral vendors will have specimens on display in both the rough and cut-and-polished states. An hourly raffle will be held for a chance to win one of many beautiful prizes to be offered throughout the show. Food will be provided throughout the show by the Mingus Union High School Theatre Club. Funds raised from the food court, as well as part of the proceeds from our raffle, will assist in the troupes’ spring production of "Footloose: The Musical". This is a fun and educational event the entire family will enjoy. Admission is $3.00 for adults, and children under the age of 12 are free.
