Hello all, I am a 30 year old mineral collector who doubles as a dedicated paleontology student in college and collections manager at the Stonerose Interpretive Center in Republic Washington.

My personal interests lay mainly with Washington minerals and to a larger extent northwest localities including BC, ID, MT, OR, and AK. I also have a side interest in Fluorite and native elements.
