Thanks for stopping by My Crystal Advisor, my name is Jerred and I’ve always had a fascination with crystals and gemstones.  Gemstones have been a part of my life since I was 8 years old. All throughout high school and college, my love for collecting stones remained strong.  My family would visit Franklin, North Carolina multiple times per year and I would screen for gemstones.  Later in life, I found out the buckets of sand were not from a mine but salted (add gemstones to the sand and then sell you the bucket) by the property owner.

As time went on I ventured into cabbing and faceting and ultimately wound up cutting and collecting stones as a hobby.

At the beginning of every year, I make my way to Tucson, Arizona to explore the Gem and Mineral show.  Without a doubt, I’ll wind up adding to my crystal and gem rough collections because it’s next to impossible to leave the Tucson Gem and Mineral show without purchasing something.
