Tucson gem, mineral, and fossil show continues to overwhelm
I've only had time to pop in for a few minutes to a few of the dozens of independent shows around Tucson as part of the Tucson Gem, Mineral, and Fossil Showcase that officially kicked off a week ago. I was taken by the Peruvian pyrite on quartz with sphalerite specimens at the Days Inn. The one at right is priced at only $1,500.
Up at the Tucson Inn Suites, Tynsky's Fossil Quarry is displaying a cast of what they say is the only complete Eohippus ("dawn horse") recovered from the Green River Fm lake beds in Wyoming.
Arizona Petrified Wood has beautiful tables with petrified wood slab insets and a wide range of slabs for inclusion in other furniture.
