Danielle Rose
Crater Rock Museum Ambassador since 2016
Danielle Rose has proudly served as a Chamber Ambassador since 2016, first as a business owner, and now representing Crater Rock Museum in Central Point. She was awarded the 2017-18 Ambassador of the Year (much to her surprise.) Danielle is the current president of the Roxy Ann Gem and Mineral Society, which owns and operates Crater Rock Museum, housing one of the finest displays of rocks, minerals and gems on the West Coast. The original 5,400 square foot museum expanded to more than 12,000 square feet, and houses many exhibit areas, community meeting rooms, a recently expanded gift shop, a lapidary workshop, and new in 2019, an outdoor sluice!
A lifelong lover of rocks and minerals with a fascination for the natural world, Danielle completed her Graduate Gemologist diploma at the Gemological Institute of America in Carlsbad, CA, and holds a bachelor’s degree in geology from Southern Oregon University. She enjoys educating the public and demonstrating the science of gemstone identification at the annual Roxy Ann Gem & Mineral Show, held in April each year. She offers gem ID clinics regularly at the museum and works with local jewelers to identify their “mystery stones”. Danielle is also a goldsmith and jewelry-maker, specializing in hand-fabricated jewelry that showcases the focal gemstone to maximum effect.
Danielle moved to Medford three years ago from Mt. Shasta, CA, having lived most of her life “over the hill” in Siskiyou County. She enjoys jewelry design, reading and writing fiction, collecting minerals, cultivating succulents (especially lithops, or “living stones”), Star Wars (and many other geeky things), and drawing with ink and colored pencil. After owning a successful web and graphic design business for thirteen years, Danielle is starting a new adventure as an imaging support specialist with Medford Radiology Group.
