Mineral Classics, est. 1970 and located in Colorado, is a family owned company dedicated to supplying excellent quality mineral specimens to collectors, museums and anyone interested in the science and hobby of mineralogy.
The company founder, Richard A. Kosnar, was a world renowned mineral collector and dealer. In 1993, a new mineral species, KOSNARITE, from Mt. Mica, Auburn, Maine was named in his honor for his contribution to the mineralogical community. We are extremely proud to have a mineral bearing the family name.
Today, Mineral Classics continues the procuring, mining, importing, and sale of fine quality mineral specimens, gemstones, and jewelry. We have always strived to provide not just popular mineral species, but a wide selection of unique and hard to find minerals from classic and contemporary localities.
