Can you find me a Mineral I'm looking for?
The short answer is: probably.
If you are are looking for a specimen that fit criteria, then contact us at Jordan@nscrystals.com, or on our Instagram or Facebook page. Please include as much detail as is relevant to your request, which may include:
*Species (including associations)
*Condition (such as damage)
*Composition (aesthetics, on or off matrix, crystal shape)
*Budget (It is hard to find the right specimen if we don't know the threshold for your budget)
If you are looking for an actual specific mineral specimen you've seen in a publication, then it isn't impossible to track them, however it is unlikely, and the owner may not wish to sell it. That isn't to say not to dream, feel free to reach out. The worst anyone can say is no.
Can I get my specimens photographed?
We do offer professional and commercial level mineral and product photography services, which can be scheduled and arranged by contacting Jordan@nscrystals.com.
If you wish to meet us at a show to perform your shoot, please book your shoot at least one month ahead of the show.
If you wish to ship your specimens, this gets you the cheapest rate for photos. You are solely responsible for the risk of shipping.
If you wish to book a home visit, we have minimum booking requirements. *This can vary depending on show or event traveling. If you contact us, we will work with you the best we can.
If you need photos urgently, we do offer expedited services as well. Contact us for a quote.
