Advent Calendars

Our Advent calendar section is always popular at Christmas. As far as I know, our calendars were one of the first, if not the first, available online.

We’ve learnt plenty since the very first ones sold – we now offer several varieties which are perfect gifts for any mineral collector or rockhound. 

Jewellery and craft making supplies

Simply put – Jewellery making supplies for jewellers, and other craft supplies! This section houses our cabochons, faceted stones, beads, fasteners, stickers, solder, and anything else we sell for jewellery making or crafts.

Tumblestones

Tumbled stones are a popular type of polished stone, in which a rough stone is polished in a barrel with varying grades of abrasive powder. They are one of the most common introductions to the world of mineral collecting. 

Minerals

We sell a wide range of mineral specimens from all around the world – from micro-mountable specimens to large cabinet pieces.

If you’d like to browse minerals by their country of origin, try the “Browse by Country” menu option at the top of the page.

Welcome to Albion Fire and Ice, a UK based supplier of minerals, crystals, fossils and jewellery making supplies – and, typically, everything in between!

We aim to supply interesting and curious objects from around the world, and work with suppliers on every continent to find reliable sources of high quality gemstones, minerals, fossils, and other materials.

We try to keep our customers informed about various products on the market, not just the ones we sell. 

Our website is primarily for retail customers – however, if you are a reseller, retailer, mineral shop, museum or large collection/attraction, please feel free to contact us for a wholesale/trade account. 

Wholesale and trade

We are now accepting trade applications from traders and wholesalers. While we are not a wholesaler, we are offering items at trade prices as many of our customers are jewellers and resellers.

News, articles, and blog posts

Our blog page contains a range of articles on various subjects – I try to keep it educational, covering things like dangerous minerals, tricks and scams, fakes, and other oddities that you might be interested in.
