Most children are fascinated by rocks and fossils. I never grew out of it! I studied geology in university, and am presently pursuing a Master's of Science in Geology. My area of study is gemstone exploration, and I read academic publications on geology for pleasure (…we're a rare breed). I'm fascinated by all aspects of Earth science. For years I've been exploring the backwoods for beautiful rocks and semi-precious gems. Geology is a deep subject that will influence your perspective on life and time; I'm here to share the highlights of what you should know about your Earth's geology!
