Welcome to johnbecrystals.com! Here you will find some of the biggest and best Arkansas Quatyz Crystal Specimens in the world. Take, for example, this one, which is the nicest largest cluster I have ever seen and the pride ANY museum, weighing 1,250 pounds measuring 3 feet by 3.5 feet and 32 inches tall, is $450,000.00. It is on display in the gallery in Tucson, AZ.
I live here in the Quartz Crystal Capital of the World, near Mount Ida, Arkansas. Therefore, I have access to ALL the crystals. Size and price are no object here at Johnbecrystals.com. I am able to get you the most pristine and most expensive Arkansas Quartz Crystal Specimens in the world.
The store on this site is for those specimens which are too large, too expensive, or both, to be taken to shows. I have found that most people are looking for big and CHEAP. Therefore, at my shows, I have been specializing in smaller cabinet specimens and those that are of the landscape and garden variety, which are relatively inexpensive. That is the type of material I take to shows. If you do not see it here on the website, just email me: firstname.lastname@example.org, or, email@example.com, with a description of what you are looking for and I will find some possible candidiates for your pleasure. For smaller specimens, it is much easier to see me in person at a show or by appointment.
Originally, I came to Arkansas in 1990 in a 1980 Camaro with a couple hundred bucks in my pocket. I fell in love with crystals when I dug my first crystal which was the size of my little fingernail. I won the digging contest twice in 1993 and 1994. And one of my specimens is on permanent display in the quartz display in the world famous Hillman Hall Collection in the Museum of Natural History at the Carngie Museum in Pittsburgh, PA.
Inside I also have lots of information about the cleaning process,
which can be just as hard or harder than the digging process. You
will find information on local mines, where you can go to dig and keep
all you find.
