Fabre Minerals

Hi Jordi: let me say that the material you are offering now and the prices are about the best that I have seen so far. Keep up the good work, you deserve a lot of credit for a superb effort.
Warmest regards,

John S. White

I have seen most of the mineral dealers web mineral sides on the net. I have also bought minerals from them. And from what I have seen and what I have bought, nothing compares to the minerals of Jordi Fabre.
Because he have an outstanding knowledge for minerals. His presentation of the minerals for sale is of high standard. The minerals is of a high standard, and the prices reflected the level of the minerals. The package is also very well done. If you decided to buy minerals on the net, try Jordi Fabre for his knowledge of the subject.
I greatly recommended him!

Jordi, I received the fluorite specimen today in perfect condition. This is the eleventh specimen you have sent us that has traveled over 5,000 miles to Houston in excellent condition. You have a perfect record, unlike some other specimens I have ordered in the US from other dealers that have traveled less than 1,000 miles to me and have arrived damaged. You do a great job in double wrapping them and boxing them. Thanks again,

Bruce and Marcia Friedman

You always have fine minerals at affordable prices. No "dot-com" prices at your booth.

My display of minerals won "Best of Show - Master Level" in the Tucson competition. It is nice to know that other people think I have good minerals. By the way, I believe you are one of my favorite sources. Your prices are not the lowest, but your quality is tops. I think you give an excellent value for the money.

Je profite de ce courrier pour vous manifester ma profonde satisfaction au sujet de votre site Internet: les photos représentent  avec une exactitude parfaite l'échantillon, les couleurs sont bonnes, les descriptions sont parfaites dans les "Express Specimens" et suffisantes pour moi.
J'étais sceptique et n'avais aucune envie d'acheter des minéraux sur Internet. Je parcourais les sites comme je regarde les revues de minéralogie. J'ai tenté la chance avec un achat de sphalérite sur votre site. Votre envoi m'a convaincu. Il est vrai que je connaissais votre parfaite connaissance des minéraux, votre souci de détermination exacte et la rigueur de vos descriptions. Vous m'avez donc persuadé de la possibilité d'acheter des minéraux sur Internet. Enfin je trouve sur votre site ce que je recherche: des échantillons bien formés se rapprochant des modèles cristallographiques; de petite taille (thumbnail, ou miniature), à prix raisonnable à une époque ou le marché s'emballe.

Bien cordialement.

I received my order in the mail Friday and was extremely delighted in the quality of the specimens. The quality of the photographs practically matched the samples themselves. I look forward to doing business with you again.

I just wanted to take a moment and say thank you for the updates. I sincerely enjoy receiving them. You have outstanding specimens and fantastic web site.
Your doing a great job and I just wanted you to know that someone out there appreciates it.
Thank you again...


Naturally word has gotten around that the pictures on your website do reflect the samples that you ship - your site has one of the fastest sample sales that I have seen! - congratulations.

Just received the Tourmaline and I am extremely happy with it. Will be looking at the web site to buy others.


Jordi: The 3 specimens arrived yesterday. While all three were nice, the Vanadinite was really outstanding, and I thank you for selling it to me. As usual, it is a pleasure doing business with you -- you really send me superior quality minerals, WELL PACKED, I await each shipment with great anticipation. Keep up the good work.
All the best,


The specimens I ordered arrived all in good shape. They were very well wrapped and are great specimens. Thanks for the quick service.

Hi Jordi,
Just wanted to let you know that the fluorite arrived safely in today's mail. It's a beautiful specimen and will enhance my collection. Thanks again for your great service.

Walt B.

I got the specimens yesterday as well as the separate letter and labels. The description of the minerals was very good and realistic. I agree that the piece with the smallest crystals is by far the best mineralogically. The crystals are partly gemmy and deep yellow colored. The other piece is less interesting but I do not regret it at all.


Received the cinnabar specimen today.... WOW!! I can honestly say that this is the best crystal that I have seen from Spain yet. The only 'better' looking specimen is one I saw a few years ago from XXXXXX, but he wanted an outrageous sum for the thing!! It was only slightly bigger and didn't even have much matrix!ANYWAY, I am 200% satisfied with the specimen. Only 7 small droplets of mercury became dislodged during it's 12,000 mile journey! I was amazed, because there are much larger ones tucked in small crevices that didn't seem to move at all.
Thanks again.

Just got the box of antimony. Fabulous specimens, this is the most exciting box of minerals I've ever opened! I also appreciate your excellent wrapping, everything arrived in perfect shape.Thanks for the additional information and excellent locality data, I really appreciate it.

Tim Jokela Jr

The specimen arrived today. It is a beautiful piece. Thank you again for all of your help.

Maria L.

Got back home to find the specimen here safely - excellent job on the wrapping and shipping, nice specimen which I am pleased to have.

W. Keller

I received the minerals I ordered from you a couple of days ago; they are nice specimens! I especially like the Ilvaite, which has to be the finest miniature of this species I have ever seen from any locality.

Jeff P.

Good job. One of the best I've seen. You have a "good eye" for minerals.

J. Watson

(Having seen the photos that you sent me, I would like to once again thank you and also to express my admiration for your high professional standard)

Hi Jordi

Just a note to say that my beautiful Brochantite (Milpillas mine, Sonora Mexico) arrived today in perfect condition. It is absolutely stunning! I am thrilled to add this to my collection. Your packaging was superb as everything was safe & sound.

This is not an Ebay purchase so I cannot award any feedback but I will say that you get 5-stars and more from me! Thank you for your exemplary mineral and service.

J'ai connu Jordi Fabre dans les années 80/90, alors que nous vivions à Madrid, mon épouse et moi, dans le cadre de notre mission culturelle et pédagogique. Je dois à Jordi d'avoir pu, grâce à ses conseils éclairés, constituer une importante collection de minéraux, pour la plupart espagnols. Je vois, au hasard d'une toute récente commande via son site, qu'il est resté le grand professionnel passionné que j'ai connu, il y a une trentaine d'années.
