Dazzling Delights: Tucson Gems

January 28, 2022


Presented by the Tucson Gem and Mineral Society, The 67th Annual Tucson Gem and Mineral Show returns to the Tucson Convention center from February 10th-13th. Coined as the “largest, oldest, and most prestigious gem and mineral show in the world,” the show brings together hobbyists, vacationers, curators, and professionals for discussions on the studies of geology, mineralogy, and earth sciences.

This year’s theme, “The Show That Glows” will be featuring “The Appetite Supergroup” on display as well as over 80 beautiful exhibits in the “Fluorescent Mineral Pavilion,” presented by the Fluorescent Mineral Society. Browse over 225 retail dealers, or attend a free lecture. Popular past exhibits include Fabergé Collection, Ausrox Gold Nugget, and Arkansas Yellow Diamond Crystal. Tickets are only available through the Tuscon Convention Center website or on Ticketmaster. Get yours now before the center reaches its guest limit!

If this event inspires you to grow your crystal collection, Tucson is home to rocky environments like Helmet Peak where hikers rockhound for pyrite, quartz, and malachite!
