1. Ore Deposit books, newer the better

2. Igneous books, a complete igneous library preferred

3. Mineralogical Records, a complete set, some individual volumes, whatever you have (decent condition please)

4. Mineralogy Books, old classics, the newer they are, the better

5. Any Trilobite or Ammonite books

6. More Upscale minerals for purchase, trade, or consignment

7. A set of rock thin section microscope slides
