I collect minerals of all sorts. Occasionally I focus on ideal crystals or other things. What I put on mindat is almost always a sample of my own finds, which tend to be whatever is interesting at a place I can get to. Colorado and Texas are my main locations. I am purely a hobbyist and any scientific mumbo-jumbo is because I am an engineer and can't help it, not because I am an expert or formally trained.

I think one thing I like to do is create a record of what normal human beings may find at a given location. Sometimes I'll even correct or update a misleading/missing location. I am not a mineral dealer showing beautiful pictures of museum pieces. Sometimes I'll list a mineral for completeness of the record. One of my passions is underwater photography, but I've never bothered to put so much effort into rocks.

I have collected at:

New Jersey
New Mexico

...and to a lesser extent:

Cayman Islands

As I type this I see creationist content is not allowed. I am deeply offended by lab-created minerals.
