Hi, my name is Teresa Rocks and these are my auctions. TheSpecimen that I am holding above is not included in this auction.................... The Old Stock Collection of Minerals we are now offering, came from a collector who put this together from the 1920's to the 1960's. Many of the specimens were Old Stock when he purchased them years ago. T are many very rare specimens we have posted and will be posting more. The pictures below are out of a magazine that had an article on Willard Elsing's Collection. We do not have the entire collection, only a portion of it that was sold to a Museum that in turn came to us.
