This web site was originally designed and managed by John Merritt, in October of 2015 after an injury which took him out of rockhounding, was transferred to it’s new owners at Rock Your World: Pacific NW Gem & Jewelry in Lincoln City, Oregon on the beautiful and gem covered Oregon Coast.

Rock Your World is owned and managed by a collective of rockhounds from the Pacific Northwest who share John’s passion for rocks and gems and who are dedicated to continuing his vision for this blog.

Mac recently joined the Rock Your World family and started on his path as a Pebble Pup after a deep fascination surrounding rocks and minerals became so great that he left his the security of his government job to pursue his passions at Rock Your World.
