Crystal Classics is known globally for being one of the market leaders for fine minerals. Founded in the early 1990’s by owner, Ian Bruce, Crystal Classics have been involved in the purchase and marketing of most of the major collections that have come to market in the last 25 years.
Our company has built its reputation for not only the finest, but also the most comprehensive selection of fine worldwide mineral specimens and Ian constantly travels around the globe to source new finds, individual specimens or large museum sized collections.
Our offices are based in East Coker, England and in Arizona, USA, right in the centre of the fine mineral district of Tucson, at the Tucson Fine Mineral Gallery.

In our UK offices we process most of the mineral stock that we purchase worldwide, both from working mines and from private collectors and museums. We are the owners of the famous Rogerley and Diana Maria mines in Weardale, Northern England.
Our showroom in Tucson is like no other and is open during normal business hours for visitors. The gallery space accommodates 30 showcases of expertly arranged displays, filled with over 15,000 high quality mineral specimens. Our customers can also browse through museum style drawer cabinets to find their perfect addition or that very special first specimen with which to start a mineral collection.
Ian, his wife Diana and the Crystal Classics team provide a service second to none and are known for their integrity and honesty throughout the mineral world.
