“I have the honor and pleasure to select the guest speakers and to assist in the organization of these events. Our company Rocksaholics is a proud participant of this show.”
It seems that each year the Tucson Gem Show comes back stronger than the previous year…and 2014 was no exception.
The crowds are definitely returning (albeit with tighter budgets) but for the vendors that is all they need! You can’t look at row after row of amazing gems, minerals, home decor and jewelry without at some point figuring out a way to make the purchase!
The temptations and a definite uptick in business can be seen at the Pueblo Gem & Mineral Show – add to that this show is hands down in my top 3 MUST DO list and you have a recipe for a great day!
One of the things that is engaging shoppers at the Pueblo show is their Mineral Lecture Series…I know – lecture – ewww! These are more like conversations with some of the most respected experts in the world! I was able to attend two evenings of lectures….the Federicos and Gail Spann’s comeback presentation!
” Color Zoning in multicolored gem Tourmaline”
“Pezzottaite is a caesium analogue of beryl, a silicate of caesium, beryllium, lithium and aluminium, with the chemical formula Cs(Be2Li)Al2Si6O18. Named after Italian geologist and mineralogist Federico Pezzotta, pezzottaite was first thought to be either red beryl or a new variety of beryl (“caesium beryl”); unlike actual beryl, however, pezzottaite contains lithium and crystallizes in the trigonal crystal system rather than the hexagonal system.” Acording to Wikipedia
