PECORA’s PEGMATITE was founded in 2008 as a result of Jim’s re-envisioning the "Second half of life” goals. Going back to his childhood roots Jim is reigniting his passion for rocks, volcanos & glaciers, all of which have to do with the development of the South Western New Hampshire crystal rock called Pegmatite. Pecora has been collecting the beautiful crystal rock throughout his life time.  And in 2014 he began to sell off his extensive collection in an artistic medium, under the brand CrystalRockArts. He can be found is several stores and art galleries in New England.

2012/13 was full of firsts as Jim began lecturing on the history of hard rock mining in South Western NH, then he was the Keynote Speaker at the 50th Anniversary Gilsum Rock Swap, and was featured on WKNE Radio as well as New Hampshire Chronical.  Jim’s extensive mineral research lead to a second very popular lecture entitled "the Secret Life of Beryl,” a fascinating look back at the 20th Century through the lens of a single mineral Beryl, and a little known, yet indispensable element Beryllium. In Addition Pecora’s Pegmatite launched its global storefront on Etsy; CrystalRockArts.etsy.com
