hello, this is the Logan, a complete radioactive dork!! I would like to tell you a little story about how i got into mineral collecting *ahem*

Well, i was doing some yard work and found a piece of quartz just laying in the ground. i was fascinated with the complex feel of the said quartz. i felt kinda amazed since i knew how old this thing was and decided to put it on my desk. this made me go "wow, that thing is simply beautiful!!!" which it was, at that time. i only got into REAL collecting when i looked at some of my old rocks with a magnifying glass. it looked amazing with all the microcrystals forming everywhere!! then i got more serious. i looked at minerals in museums being amazed at its beauty!! i got into radioactivity in 2007 which got me interested in naturally occurring radioactive minerals!

i am mainly open to new things like collecting places... but i also like to talk to people who are passionate about these minerals!!!! i mainly do my "mineraling" with my local radioactive friend and we find the coolest specimens at shows and peoples back yard "Dumpite".

if YOU have a pile of rocks in your back yard and live near or in VA, gimme a ring. we will test all your rocks for radioactivity and, if we find some, we will remove it accordingly. that sounds too professional. what i mean in layman's terms is that we will have an amazing time looking for radioactives and make new friends and colleagues!

thank you for dealing with my complete nerdiness. I'm sorry if i bored you!
