Welcome to Olsen's Minerals
Updated: Apr 3, 2021
Hello and welcome to Olsen's Minerals. I am Kollin Olsen, owner and founder and I want to tell you a little bit about who I am and what I do. I have been fascinated by rocks and minerals since I was a young kid and I became a big time collector in my high school years. The collecting period of my life began when my aunt was selling my great grandfathers rock tumbler and polishing wheel. I managed to save the equipment and I experimented for a number of years before my ADHD took over and I lost interest. I still collected and as my collection grew, my storage space shrank but I was unsure what to do with my collection. In high school, I bedazzled a purse for my young niece and I found a passion that I couldn't shake.
After high school and a few years of bouncing through careers, I landed a job at an underground mine here in Colorado. I have begun to love my job and after a few months of mining, i had the inspiration to start my own business on the side.
Olsen's Minerals is not only dedicated to selling jewelry, rocks, and minerals, we are also dedicated to teaching and discovering. Here on this blog, we will discuss different rocks and minerals, geological items, mining, and other rock and mineral related work. it is my hope and wish to help everyone not only find what they are looking for, but to also help everyone discover something in geology.
Thank you and I look forward to meeting all of my customers,
