September 16, 2014- NEW WEBSITE! After a long hiatus, Khyber Minerals is back online with a new website that retains the same old feel, but that is way more functional. All items are now searchable (by chemical class, color, species, size, etc) and in a database, meaning that pages are up to date. If you haven't already, feel free to play around with the new features- there are many interesting items that were once buried on the website though which are now discoverable! I've been continuously buying even while the updates languished, so expect new updates at greater frequency in the coming weeks!
