Dallas Texas Visit to Rob Lavinsky

I’m in Dallas for a conference… so I decided to visit Rob Lavinsky’s Arkenstone Gallery. Dr. Lavinsky is arguably the top mineral dealer in the world.

He has a large warehouse in Richardson Texas, just outside Dallas, filled with displays of exceptional minerals and many more drawers and cabinets filled with more exceptional minerals. He also has a vast facility for mineral photography, online sales, mineral and mineral stand preparation and shipping. Furthermore he has a great library of mineral books.

I spent most of my time perusing his selection of rare minerals, especially those from the amazing Herb Obodda collection and the Fioravanti Giancarlo collection.

Definitely a great experience. Thank you Dr. Lavinksy!
