#TucsonGemShow The Varied World of the Arizona Mineral & Fossil Show at the Hotel City Center

This is one of those shows that I recommend to people who have a limited amount of time in Tucson (the other is the Pueblo Gem & Mineral Show at the Riverpark Inn).  Both of these shows have everything from Fossils to Finished Jewelry - at varied price points.

With its lush green lawns and citrus trees with branches hanging heavy with fruit it is a relaxing sit around the pool that comes with prehistoric friends.





So lets take a quick look:


There are several dealers and displays in the lobby... 
Pu Tzu's The UnCarved Block has a small display.





Then you walk up stairs and there are Gem Sculptures, Gemstone Dealers and an amazing Jewelry Designer along side an Award Winning Gem Cutter/Jewelry Designer 

Angela Conty




Joe Jelks of Horizon Lapidary




Multiple Award Winning Gem Cutter/Jewelry Designer Darryl Alexander



Along the rear parking lot there are several Meteorite dealers





YES!  ...even Geoff Notkin of The Meteorite Men is here!


...a fabulous shell dealer




As with all the Hotel shows dealers set up their room as a showroom....
this is the room of Jordi Fabre Minerals

At one end of the pool there is a room of Fossils and Dino Replicas!
Fossil Fish to Dino Poop!




While outside all manner of prehistoric creature roam the property...




Quite honestly if you don't see it here - you probably don't need it!
