Tucson Treasures

22 Feb

For me, Arizona always conjures up images of golf playing, pastel wearing, overly tan retirees. Well I guess there’s other stuff going on there too.

Each February, there is a huge gem show held in Tucson, Arizona. Aptly named, (are you ready for this?) The Tucson Gem and Mineral Show, which has been setting trends in the gem world for the past 59 years.

Dealers from all over the planet descend on Tucson to exhibit and sell their newest finds. Every year new jewelry market trends and styles are established at the show, which is the largest of its kind in the U.S.

In recent years some gemstones that caused a stir in Tucson were Morganite, Ethiopian Opal and Black Spinel. This year Turquoise, Lapis, White Zircon and Kunzite were all red hot.
