The Arkenstone, www.iRocks.com, is one of the world’s foremost dealers in fine mineral specimens. What started in the 1980s as a side business for founder and owner Dr. Robert Lavinsky has now turned into an international business with offices in Dallas, Texas and Shanghai, China. Whether working with new hobbyists or serious collectors, we have incredible mineral specimens available at a variety of price points, and welcome the opportunity to consult on beginning or developed collections. We have assembled a knowledgeble team with over 100 combined years of collecting experience, and we are always available to meet with curious collectors.

The Dallas Symposium
We are a proud sponsor of the Dallas Mineral Collecting Symposium. The third annual Symposium was held August 22-23, 2014. Learn more here.
Our 10,000 square foot facility in Dallas, Texas holds our 3,000 square foot museum-like gallery, custom base-making lab, several professional mineral photography studios, warehouse space, and our company offices.
In 2013, The Arkenstone opened a gallery in Shanghai, China. With the incredible economic growth occurring in Asia, we are excited about bringing these fine mineral specimens to China and introducing western-style mineral collections to the evolving country.
Both galleries are open to the public by appointment only, and we are always eager to share our love for fine mineral specimens with other enthusiastic friends! Contact us at gallery@iRocks.com for scheduling.
