Tucson Fall Gem Show Highlights


Gem Show booths

I attended the Fall Gem show in Tucson last week. This show is a mini version of the February event.  For perspective: the Fall show takes place in 4 different venues with about 200 vendors exhibiting . The February show takes place in virtually EVERY hotel, exhibit hall & convention facility in Tucson. There are over 40 shows running simultaneously & I can only guess at the number of exhibitors…. at least in the thousands! 

That being said the Fall show is a pleasant experience with fewer crowds, lots of selection and places to park close by!

I was shopping mainly for rhodocrosite, amazonite and turquoise. Look for some new designs using these gemstones. I will be adding them in the next several weeks.
