I am a mineral enthusiast with training in mineralogy and crystallography. Though I make my living in another realm of science, I spend a lot of time and energy studying minerals. My main interests are crystallographical - crystal morphology, twinning, epitaxy, etc. I also have a strong interest in the mineralogy of Mount Saint-Hilaire, Quebec, Canada. I developed the Macintosh version of the crystal-drawing program SHAPE, an endeavor which I gave up with the transition to OS X. I mourn the loss of awareness/knowledge of morphological crystallography among mineral collectors, geologists, mineralogists, and even practicing crystallographers. I find the shapes of crystals to be among the most elegant manifestations of the self-organizing principles of our world!
