Fluorite is theme of 59th Tucson gem show
The theme of the 59th Tucson Gem & Mineral Show is Fluorite: Colors of the Rainbow." The official show runs February 14-17, 2013 at the Tucson Convention Center.
Word among dealers is that a larger than normal Chinese delegation will be here for the show. In the past, China sold its specimens to the global collecting community. But now, there is a growing demand among Chinese collectors and many specimens are being purchased for return to China.
There is also interest in creating gem and mineral shows in China, and their representatives will be looking at how we do it in Tucson.
