If you decide to split I'm sure he'd be interested in some of the items

My 5yo son spent a good 10 minutes poring over your photos, flicking between them and zooming in and out. He loves his "jewels." He doesn’t quite have the price of entry but thanks for sharing such an impressive collection and I here’s hoping you get a quick and easy sale

Surely a local high school, college, Uni, museum would grab these in a heart beat if they knew about them ?

 

Would make a great display piece in the foyer of the Minerals Council ( @MineralsCouncil )  or even a mining or exploration company.

 

Specimens of this quality should never be allowed to dissolve into history.........

Very impressive collection, and displayed beautifully. Do you have any fluorescent specimens? 

I know a couple of people that I'll be pointing in this direction in the next few days. 

I'd be interested in a few myself if you were to seperate?

Hi mate, thanks for taking the time to look! I'll be honest,  a few may display the florescent properties but that's not something I thought about when collecting. 

Well thankyou,  that would be awesome of you to share this with your friends.

I'd rather not split,  but if you and your mates together bought the lot between you I would be fine with that.

      Item Condition: New Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Pickup available and you can audition.,Shipping is included in price. Suburb or Town: New Farm State: Queensland Payment Method: Paypal, EFT, Cash Reason for selling: Made the stands for the purpose of selling Solidly welded from heavy 14 gauge steel to provide strength and excellent acoustic characteristics. The side vertical beam has been welded for neatness and strength while others variations do not.

      Dimensions: Top platform 15.25" w x 13" d, front height 8", Tilt 5°.

      I've made these for the JBL L100 but I believe they also correct Klipsch Heresey 4 and others. Check with above dimensions first.

      Powder coated in satin black.

      M6 Nuteserts in the base for attaching additional items for advanced acoustic isolation. (Gaia III shown in picture, not included in sale of item ).

      A few marks on the speakers that I have tried to show in the photos with the flash on. Not in 100% mint condition but only the fussiest would be dissuaded. These are seriously good speakers, the whole Silver series has blown my mind and really put Monitor Audio on my radar. These would be epic in a beginners or budget system and will not bottleneck source/amplification upgrades as you progress higher.
       
      Comes with factory packaging, manuals, grilles, port plugs etc.

      A few marks on the speakers that aren't clearly discernible by the photos, nothing major at all. Local pick up only as I want the prospective buyer to have a listen and look before purchase.
       
      These are the later variant of the Equinox using the updated drivers. No factory packaging.
