Robert Sielecki
(1958-    )

Robert "Rob" Sielecki, an exploration geologist by training (B.Sc. Hons., Geology), and Janine Rea, a mine geologist, are the proprietors of the Ausrox mineral dealership at 42 Hex Street in Tottenham, Melbourne, Australia. Rob began exploring for reserves of ornamental gemstones in Australia in 1979, and during the following years he identified over 50 promising deposits. Unable to obtain financial backing for the mining operations, Rob and Janine went into business for themselves. They began advertising in the Mineralogical Record in 1988, specializing in fine Australian and non-Australian minerals from micromount to cabinet sizes, and first sold specimens at the Tucson Show in 1989.

Rob is the owner and Managing Director of Crystal Universe, Pty. Ltd., trading under the name of Ausrox. The new mineral species sieleckiite, discovered by Rob, was named in his honor in 1988. Rob travels to mineral shows in Europe and America six time a year, and is constantly receiving new shipments from Brazil, America, Uruguay, China and other parts of the world. He has a showroom and warehouse in Perth and also in Merlbourne. Rob's website address is
