Chris Tucker Minerals and gemstones
Specializing in minerals and gemstones from Montana


Welcome to my website. Here you will find a selection of fine gemstones used for affordable jewelry as well as mining antiques. Click on the links to the left to view specimens in those galleries. You will notice that the minerals I have offered for sale are not the same old common pieces from India, China, and Mexico, I am the source for the vast majority of the specimens on this site. If you see another dealer with the same material, chances are good that they bought it from me. I work hard to bring only the finest specimens out of long forgotten mines and into your collection.
