Jacquot & Son Mining has been providing gem and mineral specimens to museums and collectors since 1998. Offered on this web site are specimens of gems, minerals and fossils from the southeastern United States and around the world. All specimens offered are mined or collected legally by Jacquot & Son Mining. We also offer specimens from the estates of well known southeast mineral collectors.


All items are shipped and insured by Jacquot & Son Mining at no cost to the buyer.

Layaway plans available. If you see a specimen you really want but can't afford all at once, I will work with you on a monthly payment plan. The item will be marked "sale pending". Your specimen will be shipped once final payment is received. No returns on items. All items are insured against damage. Deposits on layaway plans are non-refundable. We do our best to describe items. Ask any questions before purchasing items. I am happy to provide high resolution pictures and will make an appointment for you to view large expensive items before purchasing.
