I have been a student of Gemology since the seventies and a rock hound for as long as I can remember. My career in jewelry over 40 years has given me an undying respect for the planet and the wonders that it holds. My mission is to educate and inspire others to see the beauty in the universe by understanding the natural world we live in. Minerals are what everything, including humans, are made of. Sometimes they make up organisms, sometimes they make crystals. Ain’t it grand?
