Christopher Nohl

Businessman & Entrepreneur

Christopher Nohl has a passion for fine minerals and gems, and is also the founder, co-curator and lapidary artist of Chrysalis Boutique.  He is also the Treasurer of the Wisconsin Geological Society.  His collection of gems and minerals is one of the finest found on the planet.

Christopher like to think of fine minerals as much more than just “rocks”.  They are constant reminders of the beauty left behind by nature.  He finds comfort in the geometric aspects of fine minerals when many other parts of life seem completely disordered.  

Throughout his career, Christopher has been mentored by some of the leading experts in many fields including gemology, mining, minerology, and faceting.  He wishes to thank all those who have been a part of helping his career in gems and fine minerals.

Each week Christopher makes a point to research new specimens to keep his skills and awareness fresh when examining for quality and pricing.

This site is both for experts in the field, and those brand new to fine minerals, and for those that are new to the industry, Christopher wishes to say: “I envy all that lies ahead for you”, and to all the seasoned experts, “Welcome back.”
