It happens once a year. It starts out as a trickle and then it grows into a rock show. Some of the rock stars have millions of dollars in their pockets while other move heavy pallets of boulders. The Tucson International Gem and Mineral Show is chaos to the senses!
Looking for some rare boulders? You have come to the right place.
How about beads made of rocks from the Colosseum in Rome? Yep, you can buy those here from a Swiss company called Horizonte. Oh, and if Colosseum rocks aren’t your thing, how about beads made out of pavers from the from the front of Albert Einstein’s home. Sure you can get those as well!
I like the beautifully decorated stingray cuffs!
And the earrings made of pierced leather and diamonds!
There are tents full of Chinese fresh water pearls.
If you wanted to have a full scale dinosaur replica and had some spare room in your car, that is a possibility also.
It is hard not to be amazed by the gigantic mineral specimens.
And for the rock hound, lots of bin of specimens to dig through.
Of course, some rock star only come for the food and ambiance!
Good bye Tucson! Thanks for hosting us again this year!
