I specialize in collecting rare and secondary copper minerals but have a wide range of interest in all minerals.

I am now retired and spend time photographing micro-specimens and adding to our identification collection. In 2018 we reopened our old museum and shop near Benson Arizona again since we are not as active now and enjoy the contact with mineral collectors.

Nice to share with all on Mindat.

Welcome and hope you enjoy your visit to my page!
