I have been interested in rocks & minerals my entire life. My interests have changed somewhat over the years which I think is normal. I began with collecting agates and most importantly, Montana Moss Agates. Even though I continue to enjoy this endeavor, I also enjoy collecting many different varieties of crystalline quartz and most recently, have begun working on adding "gem crystals" to my collection. A sub-collection I am working on is a really nice collection of miniature gem crystals. I am also actively involved in my local club, the Tidewater Gem & Mineral Society, as newsletter editor and webmaster. The best thing about this hobby is the people that you meet along the way. Thank you for visiting my home page. Come back soon!
