The Nevada Mineral & Book Company team is made up of geologists, gemologists and jewelers. We believe that in order to understand the beautiful planet we live on, you must be able to see, touch and experience it. Therefore, we travel far and wide to bring back not only the items, but the stories behind them.
Our passion is sharing these stories with our customers: from the geometric crystal forms of minerals; to the history of ancient life through fossils; or the eternal beauty of a gemstone which lie dormant for eons until it was excavated and burnished by man. Each represents a unique piece of natural art for you to take home and enjoy.
Walter Lombardo is the founder of Nevada Mineral & Book Company. Walter is a geologist with over 35 years of experience in mineralogy and the mining industry. Walter has an extensive list of contacts worldwide for minerals, gemstones and fossils, many acquired directly from the people who mine them.
