Due to a family emergency, I did not attend the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show this year. It was the first time in 12 years that I have not gone. I've been having dreams about the stones all week and deeply missed going, however. . .
Here's the good news! The emergency has passed, leaving everyone well once again, AND, there is a gem show that comes to Denver in two weeks. After the Tucson show, which is the largest gem and mineral show in the world, thousands of vendors split up and go to smaller shows around the country. Luckily, that includes Denver, which is where we are based. So now I am chomping at the bit to go to the Denver show! I will take my list of stones I want with me, but as always, there are no guarantees what I'll find. My assistant buyer is flying in from Chicago to attend the show, so we will be able to double our efforts at finding new and unusual stones. After attending every gem show that comes to town as well as an annual treck to Tucson, AZ, each show remains a grand and glorious treasure hunt!
I will be putting up some new stones over the coming weeks, so please do check the website frequently.
