Hello all. My name is Jason Smith and I reside in Charlotte, NC. I spend most of my time under the microscope when I am not at work, collecting, skateboarding, etc. I specialize in microminerals but matrix size doesnt matter much. I have a deep interest in phosphates, arsenates, tellurates, etc but generally collect systematically. I also have a fondness for pegmatite secondaries, especially the phosphates. I live about 35 minutes from the dumps at the Foote Mine in Kings Mountain, NC so get in touch with me if there is anything you desire from there!
