This is Collection Arkane's first special auction for the sale of an interesting private collection of specimens from Canadian and international localities, collection we recently purchased from a Canadian collector. This collector started in the 1960's and kept buying until 2020, so you will find oldies and more recent specimens. Whenever possible, each of his specimens will come with his typewritten card (yes, this collector never used a computer) documenting the main mineral species, and sometimes with the original label of the dealer he purchased the specimen from. This collector purchased specimens from thumbnail size to super large museum size (over 50 cm) and his collection includes numerous specimens too large and/or too heavy to be normally shipped by standard delivery. Most of these large and/or heavy specimens will not be offered in our auctions. At last, most species are limited to one or only a few specimens.
