Wayne’s interest in gold and mineral specimens began in grade school with his visits to his grandfather’s log cabin along a stream in the California gold country near Yosemite. This led to degrees in Earth Sciences and Physics; followed by work in low temperature physics research (he holds several patents for highly ‘secretive’ devices he developed while acting as a liaison with one of those undisclosed super sleuth agencies in Washington, D.C. since he held top secret clearance from his days as an Army Intelligence officer). In 1976 Wayne left research to take KRISTALLE ‘full time’ and travel the world in search of specimens.
