I fell in love with minerals in the third grade thanks to a teacher who brought minerals she had collected most notably a large Quartz crystal. Living in far south Texas we didn't see much in the way of crystals so I was hooked. After getting a degree in Chemistry and Geology, I worked in the Uranium solution field and then for the oil industry. After about 15 years and as a result of one of the many down turns in the oil business, the company "retired" me. Not finding anything available in the geochemistry field I decided to turn my part-time business/hobby into a full time business and opened Nature's Gallery in Carrollton, TX. which is a suburb of Dallas. My favorite mineral is Pyrite and just about everything else I like which is almost everything except the "rare uglies" :-). My wife thinks I am crazy but I think I am just a fanatic.
