Persson Rare Minerals / Dealer at Rocky Mountain Gem and Mineral Spring Show Booth #24
'Persson Rare Minerals is a small, Denver-based, mainly online company specializing in both rare and aesthetic crystallized mineral specimens at reasonable prices. It was started in 2012 by Phil Persson, a lifelong mineral collector and currently a graduate student working on a masters degree in geology at the Colorado School of Mines. Phil began collecting minerals as a child growing up near the 'fluorescent mineral capital of the world', Franklin, New Jersey, where he was actively involved with the local mineral museums, clubs, and shows. After moving to Colorado in 2005 and obtaining his bachelor of arts degree in geology from the University of Colorado at Boulder, he worked as a geologist for for the mining and mineral exploration industry in places such as Nevada, Idaho, Arizona, and Sweden. His current research is on the petrology and mineralogy of the Mount Rosa peralkaline granite complex in the southern part of the Pikes Peak batholith. When he is not collecting minerals or leading field trips for local mineral clubs, he enjoys skiing, rock climbing, and writing. Persson Rare Minerals looks forward to seeing you at the first annual spring Rocky Mountain Gem & Mineral Show and will be featuring classic Colorado minerals from around the state, old European minerals from several collections, rare species, new acquisitions, and more.
