Our journey as mineral sellers officially began 15 years ago, but it was conceived in the passion of a 7-year-old kid who fell in love with rocks found in a quarry in Fort Wayne, Indiana. That was 58 years ago.
The details of the early years of Stonetrust aren’t important beyond mentioning the principles that guide us daily. Developing long-term relationships is a fundamental goal of our company, and we do this through the principles of respect and honesty. We owe our longevity and success to this commitment.
“It’s about the rock.”
This is a phrase we have heard many times. Mineral collectors are on a vigilant quest for the next addition to their collection, and we understand the zeal that motivates them. We share that same enthusiasm, and are eager to employ that energy to find that next perfect mineral. We do that best when we understand the goal and can partner with the collector.
In addition to working for specific collectors to assist in building collections, we are constantly building inventory that we trust will be interesting and pleasing to prospects and clients that we meet at various mineral shows.
The rock can be elusive.
We have built our business on cultivating great relationships with clients, collectors, mineral dealers and miners. Sometimes it takes many months — or even years — to find and acquire the specific mineral specimen that will satisfy the collector’s desire. Patient diligence fuels our search!
