2016 Quartzsite and Tucson Rock and Gem

Post by Jim_b » Sat Jan 02, 2016 7:21 pm

The Quartzsite show has started - At this time of the year, 2,000 vendors of rocks, gems, minerals, fossils and everything else imaginable create one of the world's largest open air flea markets in Quartzsite.

The Tucson Gem and Minerals start in Feb.
Every February, mobs of rockhounders, gem dealers, paleontologists, Native Americans, geologists and the just plain curious converge on Tucson, Arizona for the annual Gem & Mineral Show. During the Winter 2016 Tucson Gem, Mineral and Fossil event, over 30 different independently owned and operated shows are held during the month, with over 3,000 exhibitors citywide.

Its free, outdoors. and at Mesa Community college in Mesa

They have replicas of the Peralta Stones on display.
