I am currently attempting to make some rough insurance valuations for my collection. I have some old Mexican and American pieces for which I have no idea of the value and would appreciate it if any one could assist with an opinion. I have had most of these 20-30 years.

MX_SE01: a galena on pyrite from Santa Eulalia with the typical etched galenas to 15mm diameter. Dimensions: 115mm x 80mm x 90mm. (4 3/4" x 3 1/4" x 2")
MX_LL01: butterscotch zoned wulfenites up to 11mm & 3mm thick from Los Lamentos. Dimensions: 80mm x 55mm x 65mm. (3 1/2" x 2 14" x 2 1/2") A few broken crystals.
MX_MA04: rosasite with barytocalcite from Mapimi. Dimensions: 180mm x 95mm x 55mm. (6 3/4" x 4 3/4" x 2 1/4")

Any assistance much appreciated.

Regards Robbie Neilson
