The Invasion of Tucson Reply

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!

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!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

If you wanted to have a full scale dinosaur replica and had some spare room in your car, that is a possibility also.

And for the rock hound, lots of bin of specimens to dig through.
