Thank you! Tucson Mindat Auction donors

Last Updated: 15th May 2015

By Jolyon & Katya Ralph

Thank you

At the TGMS Show in Tucson earlier this year we held a fundraiser auction for mindat.org that raised over $4000 for our mindat.org campaign funds and to help with out Tucson 2015 expenses.

Some mineral specimens have been kept aside for an online auction to be run by Trinity Minerals, see some of the items below. 90% of the gross goes to The Hudson Institute of Mineralogy to help mindat.org continue to run.
