~ Polished mineral slabs at the Tucson Gem & Mineral Show ~
The largest Gem & Mineral Show in the United States
Once a year, for two weeks in February, the world of rockhounds, diamond merchants, fine gem dealers, collectors of dinosaur bones and the odd geologist or two descend upon the city of Tucson, AZ for the annual Gem and Mineral Show. The prices are amazingly cheap, by and large. You can buy countless treasures for a dollar or two, or the 125 lb rock in the photo below for $15,750.
Things to do and places to visit ~ your bucket list...
February probably isn't your favorite time of year if you live in Canada, Alaska, or the northern half of the United States. It's cold and snowy, and you're feeling a touch of cabin fever.
Pull out your calendar and write in a visit to Tucson next February. Book early; the hotels fill up quickly. ...and give me a call to let me know you're coming. We'll have an Active Rain meetup!
