Fairfield, Utah has been famous among mineral collectors for well over a century as the source of the world's finest specimens of variscite. The chrome-green nodules, riddled with veins of various other phosphates, make splendid display specimens when slabbed and polished. The mine is also the type locality for the phosphates englishite, gordonite, millisite, montgomeryite, overite and wardite. Source

Since 1967 the Sakoany area on the northwestern coast of Madagascar has yielded many hundreds of tons of geodes lined with beautiful blue celestine crystals, the world's finest examples of the species. Even today it remains the one reliable source of superb celestine crystal groups, and the deposit shows no signs of being exhausted. Source

The Mineralien-Niederlage ("Mineral Dealership") established by the famous Freiberg Mining Academy began supplying students of mineralogy with mineral collections and fine specimens in 1765. Though it has dealt primarily through exchanges since 1956, when it was integrated into the Academy collections, and is no longer the major source that it once was, it remains the world's oldest continuously operating mineral business. Many classic specimens in collections worldwide can trace their origin to this important source. Source
