Hi there! My name is Steve and I am an Australian amateur mineralogist, artist and photographer. I have set up this website to capture mineral specimens in my collection, hence The Pebble Collection!
The Mineral Index page lists all of the mineral species in my collection, a bit under 2,000 I think, out of a possible 5,000+ species described.
I also operate a few other websites:
- stevesorrellphotography.com that showcases my photography for more than just minerals.
- crocoite.com, online since 1999 and containing information about the minerals of Australia and New Zealand.
- crocoart.com – my mineral and other artworks.
- comparethemineral.com where I sell duplicates or upgraded mineral specimens that become surplus to my collection. Sale proceeds go directly back into my collection!
- ispyminerals.com – mineral auctions.
- sorrellpublications.com – Monthly Mineral Chronicles and more!
- mwynau.com – my mineral library.
