If you’re a collector of precious rocks and minerals, then you know how important it is to have the right display case for your collection. It should not only show off your finds, but it should also keep them safe. In this buyer’s guide, we’ll tell you exactly what you should be looking for in a display case for rocks and minerals. With over 20 years of experience under our belts, we’ve come to know what works best with rock & mineral collections.


Build Quality

Never overlook the quality of the build of your display case. Remember, it’s more than just about aesthetic value – your unit should be built to stand the test of time, maximising your investment and ensuring your valuables are kept in good condition. Pay particular attention to the quality of the shelving installations. Consider whether you want a fixed or adjustable option. If you go for the latter, make sure the fixtures are solid and secure. At Showfront, we never make cuts on the quality of our display cases. We understand that valuable collections deserve quality and durable housing units.


For the lighting of your display case, you’re looking for two things in particular. First, it’s about keeping your collection safe. Experience has shown us that cool and energy-saving LED lighting works best – that’s exactly what we use. This means that you can keep your rocks and minerals away from heat damage, while still being able to have them on display.

You also want to make sure that lighting placement and quality is such that your collection can be shown to visitors – ideally, see whether your unit can be customised with your specific items in mind. Placement of lighting is an important consideration in this. In particular, a display case for crystals must have several lighting angles to maximise the aesthetic value of your collection.

 Our LED lighting in display cabinets is designed both to give maximum viewing pleasure, while at the same time keeping costs low. It makes our units perfect mineral collection display cabinets. 


When it comes to choosing your mineral display case, you’re looking for value for money. This doesn’t mean the cheapest option you can find – units that are on the lower end of the pricing scale will usually shave off quality and durability.
