Trusty online auction sites?

What are your preferred sites that you use to buy mineral specimens? I am a student with a low budget, so the less expensive, the better.

You know, I find getting my own samples is better. Rock and mineral shows and shops.. they are mot cheap anywhere but you can get deals when you meet people. One guy looking to go out of business and selling stock fast and you get a whole box of specimens. I go every year and they always have vendors moving stock like that.

Yeah that's a good point. I live near a rock museum with events like that all the time, just wanted to check. Thanks!
