While the world of man-made art is well-known, the incredible beauty of fine minerals, earth's natural art, is still relatively unknown. For some of the most precious specimens, miners have literally moved mountains to extract these hidden treasures. From secret mine pockets, mountain passes, dirt roads, and rusty cars, these specimens are gently cleaned and become some of the most beautiful works of art ever given to the world. As this industry moves from a hidden hobby to an emerging worldwide asset class, there is unprecedented access to images, information, and fine mineral specimens.
The Arkenstone, located in Dallas, Texas, is the world's foremost dealer in these natural pieces of art. Our 10,000 square foot facility includes a showroom featuring hundreds of specimens from all corners of the globe.

Natural Interior Decor
Natural decor has been trending like mad in recent years.

Whether we're working directly with clients or with interior decorators and firms, The Arkenstone has a variety of minerals in different sizes, colors, and price points to provide a perfect accent to homes and offices.
While these pieces are incredible when viewed in person, The Arkenstone and Joe Budd Photography wanted to provide even clearer and crisper visuals of the delicacy and intricacy of these fine mineral specimens.
