Minerals and Crystals

about ...

Crocoite, Dundas Tasmania Australia

Australia is very rich minerals and is a very old continent. As a result in Australia you can find very nice minerals and fossils to buy. Many minerals are very rare to find outside Australia or are not of the same quality as the Australian minerals.

The shops selling minerals in their native form, are not always easy to find, therefore a bit of research from your part will help. in the tourist information section you will find a few addresses and links. Use these as pointers an try to find others. In case you plan to visit the Australian Museum, that has on display a large and very nice collection of minerals, you can also ask them to help you locate shops that are selling minerals and rocks. The Australian Museum has also a small shop at the entrance, that sells between other minerals and fossils.
