Buying at Tucson
It's that time again. The 2014 Tucson Gem and Mineral Show is just around the corner! With fifty shows all running at the same time, the city of Tucson becomes a mecca for anyone who loves rocks. It is the largest gem show in America, if not the world. Folks come from all over to touch, bargain and buy rocks. Each year I return to my favorite shows, and over the past ten years, I've come to know certain vendors and trust that their fabulous stones will cause my heart to beat a little faster. When I get that feeling, I rarely walk away empty handed.
It would seem that six days of gem hunting would be enough to get around to most of the shows, but by the time we have to leave, there are still so many left to explore. This year, I am determined to attend at least one new show, and while I never know what I will find, I promise I will come back with new and exciting treasures guaranteed to excite your chakras and encourage your spirit.
