hola people,

Got a note from Marco Campos, as usual the Gems in Gems company will have some of the weirdest things and inclusions you can find at the show.
the amazing stuff will be available at these venues:

-pre-show at Pueblo Gem Show, Room 113, Canopy C30 and Tent 673 = January 24-26
-Pueblo Gem Show, Room 113, Canopy C30 and Tent 673 = January 27 to February 8
-post-show at Pueblo Gem Show, Canopy C30 and Tent 673 = February 9-11
-GJX Show, Booth 917 = January 31 - February 5

"This year we have an unbelievable number of new stones and some special new finds, including the "passion amethyst", the "sky" kyanite and specimens of yellow rutile in opal; you will be surprised by our huge selection of quartz with inclusions (as star rutile, dumortierite, gilalite and quartz with Paraiba tourmaline), colored gemstones (as tourmaline, imperial topaz, beryl), rare gemstones (as fluorescent opal, orange cordierite and blue amblygonite), drusy gemstones (as azurite and cavansite) and lapidary material (as pinolith and paesina, both rough and polished). Pay attention also to our new "fluorescent gems and mineral space"."

Marco Campos, Gems in Gems has always been my favorite stone vendor in Tucson. Every year he features different wondrous curiosities. His collection is not to miss.

My 2 regrets for missing Tucson this year are not seeing Alberto and Mikko and not having the opportunity to blow my wad at Gems in Gems. :(

Is that all he'll be displaying this year?

:wink:

I have to admit, I drop a fair amount of time and $$$ on this collection annually. It is still my highlight of the show.
