You MUST answer all of the following questions (ENTER NA for "no Answer Yet"), this is to keep out spammers. -- First Question - Are you interested in any of the following: rocks, fossils, lapidary, minerals, crystals, geology, rockhounding, etc?

I have collected fossils, crystals and minerals from Sweden to Washington State and as far south as Texas. I also facet, cut cabochons, and do some larger lapidary projects.

Would you consider yourself - Newbie, Novice, Some Experience, Experienced, Very Experienced, Guru?

No matter how much I climb this tree there does not seem to be an end to the branches.

Tell us what you are most interested in about this group: Presentations, Exploration/Field Trips, Lapidary, The Paranormal/metaphysical properties, Geology, Rock/fossil/jewelry buying/Selling/Exchange?

I would like to learn of collecting locations and like to meet like minded people wherever I go.

How long have you had an interest in Rocks/Fossils/etc?

Over 40 years.

Are you close to Elkridge (home of our local meeting)?

I work in the area several times a year.


I am from Maine, have degrees in Philosophy and Accounting. I am a traveling auditor and collect everywhere they send me. I hope to find good sites in the Fairfax area or within a few hours drive.
