What is your personal history with rock hounding/mineralogy/fossil collecting?

I've collected "rocks" since I was able to pick them up! I've been a member of the Boston Mineral Club for 4 years, and go on as many collecting trips as possible. I've driven cross-country and visited all the collecting sites I could in 3 months.

What are you hoping to get out of this meetup?

I'm hoping to find field-trip buddies, and also maybe find someone who can cab or facet some of my rough gemstones.

Are you comfortable sharing your own knowledge to enrich the meetup experience for all membersfrom novice to expert?



My name is Melissa, and I live in South Hamilton, MA. Mineral collecting, esp. field collecting is what I love best, followed by skiing. I have all seasons covered! I'm a marketing specialist by trade.
