World's biggest gem, mineral, & fossil show getting underway

Even while vendors are unpacking and setting up their booths and tents, all kinds of wheeling and dealing is going on around Tucson as the world's biggest gem, mineral, and fossil show gets ready to open on Saturday.

I went out for a short walk over lunch and the city is buzzing. Trucks unloading, forklifts moving the big crystals and fossils, crates being pried open, and lots and lots of pre-show deals in the making. One Brazilian vendor just down the street from us sold 3/4 of his entire inventory yesterday.
