I was raised and still live in Denver, Colorado. Geology, and especially mineral collecting has been a passion of mine off and on my whole life...

During my youth, I was quite interested in minerals and rocks, and even was given a nick name Scott-Rock. During this time I didn't collect much, but I was always fascinated in the unusual. My favorite minerals were Azurite/Malachite and Corundum. I was very passionate about the polished minerals because of the beauty. But I did love the polished pieces as the colors and detail are revealed. Today, I am not as into polished specimens as I am into more crystallized, euhedral specimens.

I actually don't collect in any particular fashion. My passion for polished stuff has diminished, but my passion for mineral science has not!! Since 2010, I have been an avid rock-hound and I have explored much of the Pikes Peak Batholith, especially in Rampart Range and Harris Park. Near Devil's Head, I have found sherry topaz and smoky quartz crystals.

Over the years, I have emassed a large collection of minerals and I want to share the beauty of them. Please enjoy my photographs and I'll be uploading more location images of my treks in the Rocky Mountains.
