Field Collecting, New York State Mineral Specimens

 

     

 

We collect primarily in St. Lawrence County, New York.  It would rank as one of the most important mineral and mineral specimen producing counties in the country and host many historic localities.  We have been lucky to have rediscovered classic lost localities, new, previously unknown localities, have had great success at well known fee localities.  Anyone who tells you there are no more good places to collect in New York certainly does not know what they are talking about.  Many of the localities we target have produced specimens for close to two centuries and continue to produce fine specimens.
