About Geology Superstore
We are Britain’s leading supplier of mineral exploration equipment, geological tools and earth science rock, mineral and fossil specimens and gemstones.
Geology Superstore is the online trading name of Northern Geological Supplies Ltd. Established over 30 years ago (1985) by Barry Roberts, working out of his garage at home, the company started out by supplying educational rock and mineral sets to ‘E.J Arnolds’ of Leeds, a leading educational catalogue company at the time. Since then, the business has expanded into supplying earth science, educational material & geological equipment worldwide. We have supplied the government of Kuwait, prepared specialist sets for the Science Centers, Rockwatch, outfitted the Hong Kong Geopark of China with a variety of display fossils and have supplied educational geology sets to educational arms of various petroleum companies. Since then, the company has diversified into supplying a variety of rough rock, fossil, mineral & gemstone specimens to schools, universities, government bodies, show caves, gift shops, museums, private collectors, the general public and 3rd parties.
Rocks & Minerals
As one of the leading suppliers of rough rock and minerals in the country, we have as you may expect ammased a vast and diverse range of rocks and rough minerals from around the world on our premises. Due to the fact that the majority of British and Norwegian rock is collected by our selves, we can offer an array of rock and minerals which many others can’t, at prices very few can match.
