Pioneer Gem Home Page

We buy several dozen estates and coilections every year.
 When doing  this we accumulate tens of thousands of odds
and ends and 'odd lots' of gems, minerals, and fossils.
 In an effort to clear out our warehouse/storeroom and
assorted safes we have decided to offer them to you,
our valued customers, in bulk at ridiculously LOW PRICES.
 Most of these items haven't seen the light of day in 5--30 years
 and are priced at levels well below todays market value.
Some are not even available in the marketplace today.

See photos and/or videos of these items below.
