Welcome to Terra Minerals, an online mineral store offering earth’s treasures in their natural beauty!

Rocks have been a passion of mine since I was a little girl. My grandparents and a great uncle started my interest by giving me rocks and minerals collected in their travels. My great Uncle Glen had quite an extensive collection from his travels across the United States – digging, collecting, bartering, and buying. During my teen years, I put my collection away because of other interests and responsibilities.

I carried my rock collection around with me after I moved away from my childhood home; although I didn’t have an immediate interest, I couldn’t part with my collection. Several years later, when my son was eight, I pulled my collection off the closet shelf and shared them with him. My passion reawakened. Living in a mineral mecca, Colorado, it wasn’t difficult to get back into my hobby. I soon met other people, with the same passion, who introduced me to different rock related activities – mineral shows, lapidary, jewelry making, prospecting, cleaning and preparation, and photography. My infatuation with minerals had become so consuming that my husband and friends encouraged me to turn my hobby into a business. All of these people have become great friends and an important part of my life and I thank them, and my husband, for their encouragement and support.

So here we are – Terra Minerals – a passion that I can now share with everyone! We offer a beautiful selection of minerals fairly priced for the average collector.
