I am a Canadian mineral collector interested primarily in alkali localities. These include Mont-Saint-Hilaire, the Varennes quarry and the Francon quarry in Quebec. I also collect from other such localities like the Aris quarry in Namibia, the Jones Mill quarry in Arkansas and Point of Rocks in New Mexico. I have done considerable trading in the past and hope to do more in the future. This is in order to increase my species collection and acquire more pretties. I am very happy to send other collectors Quebec specimens and any other traders I have.
