Here are some photos I took today at the yearly gem and mineral show, in my city.
I never miss this show. I look forward to it every year. Lots of fun stuff, mineral specimens, lapidary rough,
jewelry, and of course --gems, gems, gems!

It really is a great afternoon. It makes my head spin looking at all the gemstones.
The fossils and minerals also fascinate me. I'm a rock hound at heart.

Stracci, thank you for sharing this with us! Beautiful and I am glad you had a terrific time. Love all the gems and minerals. They have a soothing effect on me. Until I have to figure out how to set them all. :lol:

Thank you for sharing this Stracci! :appl: I so enjoyed the photos! I would have a hard time getting out of there. I'd probably want to browse forever! :naughty:

I try to hit those up occasionally. I really enjoy them. A friend of mine collects specimens, and has a few favorite gem dealers. One of them is where I got my rubies. They have a show coming up soon (unless I just missed it--are you local?) and I debated going. The problem with me going is that if I buy anything, I will end up with a long range project...lol
