Speaker Biography: Tony’s interest in minerals was stimulated by an early visit to Franklin, NJ in the 1960s.

The company has specialized in rare minerals for researchers, museums and private collectors worldwide since 1974.

The Institute is now the parent organization of Mindat.org, the most prolific and widely viewed mineralogical website in the world. Tony has served as a director of the Friends of Mineralogy and is a Life Member of the Mineralogical Society of American, and is also a member of both the Mineralogical Association of Canada and the Mineralogical Society of Great Britain.
In 2001, the new mineral “nikischerite” was named in his honor. Tony has contributed over 200 articles to publications such as Mineralogical Record, Rocks & Minerals, Mineral News and Applied Spectroscopy, and he has co-authored descriptions of a number of new mineral species. He was awarded the Salotti Earth Science Education award in 2013.

American Geode will be selling our unique and unusual geodes at this special show in Pennsylvania.
We have many friends in the Pittston area. They are a fun, smart, and very nice group of people. Not only is the show full of friendly dealers of gems, minerals and fossils from rough to high-end, and everything in between, but you will also find some jewelry dealers with unique and affordable pieces, and gem and mineral artwork is also found at this very special show. Please tell them that “American Geode sen’cha!” as they will get a real kick out of that at the door if you tell them you are also friends with American Geode. Then come on over and see Joe and Charles at the American Geode to talk about geodes, gems and geology, or any other interesting topic. American Geode loves to talk with our clients, and with fellow rockhounds and gem, mineral and geode enthusiasts.
