I founded ChucksRocks.com in 2007 as an extension of my love for rocks and minerals.
Early in 2007, I purchased a small piece of property in Teller County, Colorado. The parcel is known as the Sleeping Princess property and has produced beautiful amazonite, smoky quartz, and microcline specimens, along with other pegmatite minerals. The property is near Crystal Peak, and is located in an area known for producing some of the finest amazonite and smoky quartz in the world.
I’m a geologist and a mining engineer, and I work for a mining company in Virginia. This online business is really just a way to help pay for my hobby and give me an avenue to “share” some of the great finds from the Sleeping Princess property.
