James and Dawn Minette, over a 44-year span, put together probably the finest thumbnail mineral collection the world has ever seen (thumbnails are specimens that will fit in a 1" x 1" x 1" cube).


This collection soon became renowned not only for its quantity of minerals but also for its outstanding quality. This collection was eventually sold off in 2008 at the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show(TM) never to be reunited again. If you were there, you may have seen some pieces out of this stunning collection. If you missed it, then you truly missed out on one of the legendary collections of the mineral world.


Now, for the first time in history, that collection is reunited in this one hour and twenty minute video program that is the only known footage ever shot of the Minette Collection.


Shot by Wendell Wilson, editor of the Mineralogical Record, in 2002 shortly after James' death, BlueCap Productions is proud to present this time capsule of collecting history.
