Be sure to check out my other great posts about planning your trip to the Tucson Gem Show here!
The Tucson Gem and Mineral Show is a yearly phenomenon that takes place each year at the beginning of February. The city of Tucson fills up with stones and stone hunters for three weeks of rockin’ good times (sorry for the bad pun.)
Even if you aren’t a die hard rock hound, the gem show is a fun place to wander around and shop for all sorts of things including unique clothing, gifts and imported goods from other countries, for a start. The gem show brings together vendors and visitors from all over the world. Here is a video of some scenes from the 2012 Tucson Gem Show.
