At the end of January, leaking into February, the largest gem, rock and mineral show in the world opens in Tucson. It takes over the entire city, and very much like a gathering of gypsies it turns this high desert town into an amazing display of every of stone imaginable (and quite a few you never thought of). For rock hounds this is the pilgrimage you yearn to make at least once in your life.
For those of us with businesses in gems and jewelry, it is nearly a “must go” if you want to see what is being taken out of the ground around the planet, and what very creative people are doing with them. I have been on both ends of this experience, both buying and selling what I believed others would find attractive and workable. My focus has been colored gems and stones (aquamarine, peridot, spinel, tourmaline, topaz, varieties of agate), while offering pieces that I found on buying trips to Mexico and Asia, both natural and antique.
It is a wonderful high to surround myself with these beauties of nature for a week, and allow their glow to filter into the mindspace where new ideas generate. And, when not exploring the multitude of temporary shops set up in motels, or campgrounds around town, Tucson itself offers excellent diversions via great restaurants, parks, and hotels. At first I went alone and rushed back after a few days, but seeing how extremely overwhelming the show was I began bringing my family to make a vacation of it. It has become the place we most enjoy hanging out, especially when the winter drears on and on.
