Welcome to Jonathan’s Mineral Exchange

I am an avid collector and curator of an impressive number of fine mineral specimens. My collection is sorted and displayed by localities, the most prominent locality being Mont Saint Hilaire.

Many rare and unusual fine mineral specimens were discovered in the Poudrette Quarry at Mont Saint Hilaire, in Quebec, Canada. Some are fascinating large cabinet size examples while many are micro-minerals.

I had the good fortune to join a dedicated group of knowledgeable and systematic collectors during excursions that were organized throughout the 1980’s. I had an opportunity to enjoy many days of private or small group visits during the 1990’s right up to 2005. At that time, unfortunately, the new mine owners decided to ban all non employees from entering the quarry.

Jeffry Mine in Asbestos, Quebec and the adjacent Thetford Mines and Black Lake area mines, all Canadian localities, represent a large part of my collection . Unlike many other collectors I had not limited my interest to “trophies”, rather I had collected every specimen I could find or purchase.

Another well represented locality is DeMix Quarry, in Varennes – St-Amable municipalities in Quebec. Worldwide recognition of this site keeps growing.

Always Fascinated with other nearby collecting sites and their mineralogy, I have collected and assume the responsibility for hundreds of interesting and beautiful specimens from various parts of Quebec, Ontario, BC, Nova Scotia, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Yukon and Nunavut.


I still enjoy every opportunity to join other passionate rock hounds or to be more specific mineral collectors in local excursions and throughout my collecting journey. I have traveled as far as St Diego, CA., Quartzsite and Tucson, Arizona, Little Rock and Magnet Cove, Arkansas, Virginia, North Carolina and some of the New England and New York localities.


On top of collecting excursions, throughout the year, my family and I participate in the following Mineral Shows and Symposiums:

(In March) Peterborough, Ontario; (In April) Rochester Mineralogical Symposium; (In May)The Canadian Micromounters Symposium; (In August) Bancroft Ontario Gemboree; and Springfield Mass. East cost mineral show; (In November) The Montreal Gem and Mineral show; (In December) Tokyo Ikebukuro Mineral Show.
