Pinnacle 5 Minerals L.L.C. was established in 2006; however, it carries on the traditions begun by Glacier Peak Fine Art and Gems. As the mining operations began to consume more and more time and resources, Pinnacle 5 Minerals was set up to focus on the sales and promotion of material being mined.
Pinnacle 5 Minerals attends several gem and mineral shows throughout the year, including the fall and spring Denver shows and the Tucson show. Here we offer many of the specimens we have recently mined as well as other gem and mineral products. Formerly as Glacier Peak Fine Art and Gems, and now as Pinnacle 5 Minerals, we’ve been producing fine minerals, gems, and hobby-related products since 1985.
Pinnacle 5 Minerals is a family operated business. You’ll see Susan at the shows. She specializes in gems and jewelry and can assist you in finding the “just right” piece of jewely, many of which use Colorado or Montana gemstones. Krystle, now in college, also attends shows and promotes the gems and jewelry. Both Scott and Tim grew up mining with their father, and are responsible for collecting, cleaning, and repairing many of the specimens. Both sons attend gem and mineral shows whenever possible and are knowledgeable mineral dealers. Joe began collecting gems and minerals at a young age and built his hobby into a specimen mining and selling business. He is also a bench jeweler and artist. Occasionally some of his other pieces will be featured on these pages.
