Mineral collecting is the hobby of systematically collecting, identifying and displaying mineral specimens. Mineral collecting can also be a part of the profession of mineralogy and allied geologic specialties. Individual collectors often specialize, for example collecting examples of the various colors and forms taken by the mineral calcite, calcite from widely scattered locations in a region. Specimens shown on this page are rare finds and unique items. The designation "Museum Specimen" here does not mean that these specimens are perfect. The designation here means that these specimens are better quality or more unique or rare than many specimens we have seen in Rock and Mineral Museums in our travels across America.

The catalog is the intellectual link to your collection and the key to the physical specimens. The bigger a collection is, the more important this organizational link becomes. Catalog numbers are of vital importance when specimens are used for research. Specimens are always referred to by their catalog number in scientific publications. Scientists use natural history collections to look at questions of evolution and global change. As non-renewable resources, natural history collections document disappearing habitats, species extinction, and disappearing geological and paleontological sites. Natural history specimens document the presence of a species at a specific place and time.
