Tucson Gem & Mineral Society


    Each year the Tucson Gem and Mineral Society hosts a variety of events in Tucson, AZ, of course. One of their major events for 2017 will be held February 9th through 12th 2017, at the Tucson Convention Center. This year’s theme is “Mineral Treasures of the Midwest” where private and museum collections of minerals, gems, fossils and rocks will be on display. Several hundred retail exhibitors from the U.S. and around the world will be showcasing their specimens.   You will find the show has something for everyone ranging from the beginner to the expert. Especially exciting for folks of all ages will be opportunity to see "newly" discovered varieties of minerals, fossils, etc. For additional information about this show, click here: www.tgms.org/

    Also in Tucson, AZ, and often referred to as the biggest treasure hunt in the world, the Gem, Mineral and Fossil Showcase will be held January 17 through February 12, 2017. With over 40 shows in various locations around Tucson, this event is a must for gem lovers, rock hounds, mineral mavens and bargain hunters. Specifics of each of these shows can be found at www.tucsongemshows.net. and my blogs titled "Tucson Gem, Mineral and Fossil Showcase". 

    Yeah these shows are “rocky” but they’re a blast! No pun intended!!!!
