Tremolite collection

+1 vote

I have a vast collection of tremolite ( both green and the lilac Hexagonite) from the mines in st. Lawrence county NY.  Medium to large size stones.  What is the value of the collection(about 100 to 200 rocks) and how do I determine it for each piece?  I can not keep the collection but have no idea it's value and where to sell such a collection.   Thank you for your very informative site, it has been very helpful

The value is what someone will pay for it. We do not value the minerals often but may give you an idea what we have paid for a sample similar to one you post. Simply post a picture and approximate size and weight..

Thank you weasel.  These are the smaller sizes 3-6 pounds. I have many sizes the biggest are from 10 to 20 pounds.  I left them in NY and plan to get them in the next week or so
There are NYS collectors interested in this material if its natural and has crystals. If you are located in NY let us know and perhaps we can ask a local collector to connect with you.
I live in NH now but I have family in UPstate NY and visit often.  If you have contact info I will call/E-mail them next time I go.   Thank you
Sure. Which area of upstate NY do you visit?
Near Edwards where the BALMAT mine is
Thanks so much Hershel
