Collections Purchased

In order to continue expanding our already impressive product line, we are constantly searching for new mineral localities. In general, mining locations only operate for a few years and once they finally close, minerals from these specific sites can become scarce as completely new localities most often offer minerals with variations. For this reason, older collections are an excellent course of these once common materials. As we are in constant search for new minerals here at Crystal World, and are particularly interested in older Australian collections, don’t hesitate to contact us if you’re aware of a collection- we are more than happy to conduct an appraisal to ascertain the collection’s value.

If you’d like to stay up to date with our ever-changing range of products and services, we suggest that you check out our official website on a regular basis. Both Crystal World and Prehistoric Journeys are wholesale and retail suppliers, especially in regards to Gift and Jewellery retailers across the globe. Through our retail outlets, these being Collector’s Corner in Garden World and Crystal World located in Devon Meadows, we offer an extensive range of products to our retail customers. If you don’t live locally, don’t fred- we now offer our range to the international community through this very site!

Our dedicated and hard-working founder, Thomas Kapitany, is also one of the five directors managing the National Dinosaur Museum in Canberra- on top of this, he regularly consults for international Natural History Museums in the UK, China, the USA and New Zealand. This is how we’re able to acquire such brilliant natural history specimens from all over the world!
