Stephen, the most impressive gem and mineral tour I have ever been on centered around Yekaterinburg.
If you can sort it out, you should definitely go.

Here's a link to my original trip
viewtopic.php?f=40&t=14420

I would love someone (hint, hint, Alexander) to organize something like that again, maybe throwing in St. Petersburg.

Barbra,
During the festival, we organize the similar trips(same as your original trip), on 2-3 days you can visit 6-10 deposits
Now we are forming groups on July 11-14 and July 18-21

Now that looks like the trip of a lifetime for any self-respecting gem specialist or just enthusiast! I just feel like an idiot now, I DO live in Russia and never heard of that... I should look into the ways to go there, I hope I won't have to take 3 different flights or spend 72h in a train...
