My name is David Aldridge. I currently live in Dallas, Texas - I always have, although I would honestly like to move to a more interesting state... I have been collecting minerals for over 15 years, first starting out when I was 7 years old with a small vial of gold flecks. From there, I moved on to collect quite a variety of minerals, meteorites, and the occasional fossil or two. While I like minerals of all kinds, there are a select few that I have chosen to focus on over the past 4 or so years, primarily because of the fact that I can collect them in the state that I live in (and the states which are nearby). These include the following...

*Radioactive Minerals
*REE-Bearing Minerals
*Pegmatite Minerals
*Texas - Locality Minerals
*New Mexico - Locality Minerals well as those that have odd and/or abnormal chemical compositions. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact me, and I will try to respond as quickly as possible!
