Updating Our Content Sources

We strive to present our visitors with up-to-date information. New mines and deposits are constantly being discovered, and many existing mines have recently become specimen producers. This is especially true in developing coutries such as China. In order to add in these new localities to our mineral data pages, we regularly visit mineral shows and speak to dealers to find out what's new and which localities should be added. We also read and research the popular mineral magazines and publications such as the Mineralogical Record and Rocks and Minerals.
