Hi All: Here is a brief note to let you know just what I collect and look for. I've been at it for 50+ years. Had collection ebb and flow over the years. Had many adventures and some decent finds. Always enjoy the "chase."

I do more photography now than field collecting. Hiking at a local area often and I only live a few miles from the AT, Hawk Mountain and Lehigh Gorge.

Where I live in Eastern PA is not exactly the hub of nice minerals. Now, ME and NH, I go there often and have been known to do some digging.

As to what I collect: No size restrictions. I have everything from T/N's to "door-stops." Quality is more important.

1. First and foremost, Quartz from Alpine type localities. primarily Switzerland but I have good material from most others worldwide. I'm pretty picky here. I do have a better than usual collection of this material. Apline localities include Austria, Polar Urals, Pakistan, Himalayas, etc.

2. Next, unusual (and obvious) inclusions in well crystallized quartz. That can also be a druz over something. Lots of "odd" ones but good ones here.

3. Quartz in general from more unusual localities. Those are few and far between in the collection.
I tend to ignore rock crystal or just clear quartz. I look for some color, odd association or a vug structure.

4. Lastly and most recently, Quartz (and Elbaite, possibly beryls to) from the Gillette Quarry, Haddam Neck, CT. Back in 1969, I actually collected a tiny pocket there. Still have those pieces.
