About the Owner of Fossil Age Minerals
I was born in England to American parents (both teachers). One of my favorite activities of early childhood was experiencing the thrill of unearthing minerals and fossils for my own growing collection. Because my father also served with the United States government, we eventually moved to Europe where my passion for historical finds expanded. My father would eagerly share his love of history with me, bringing my discoveries to life. It was also my father who later came forward to lend a helping hand in turning my long-standing passion into a profession.
It is our deepest wish at Fossil Age Minerals to share in collaboration with you, our great joy and respect for the precious fossils and minerals of the world. They are always a reminder that our world is full of treasures, but only when we learn to see and respect them, to hear the stories they tell us, even stories about ourselves. We are the stewards and protectors of these resources we hold dear.
