Tucson Gem Show Beauty and Fun

Updated 1/27/2020

Each winter Tucson AZ is host to the world's largest collection of Gem, Mineral, and Fossil Shows. Take it from me, it's a blast!

In 2020 many different venues hold their events from Jan 30th to Feb. 20. See more venues here.

Colorful crystals, gems, jewelry, lapidary rough and equipment, and architectural and gem infused decor are on display.

The descriptions below show some details from more than 48 shows at venues around the city who welcomed visitors, this past year from Feb. 1-16, 2019. 

Vendors from at least 33 countries sold wholesale or retail merchandise. 

It's advisable to check each show's website, to get time, dates, and location details. Here's the link for additional 2020 shows.

Approximately 50,000 people attended this past year, a gathering for gem, minerals, and fossil enthusiasts that's been run since 1955.

Here's more of the sights I enjoyed

Did you know you can use crystals and gemstones for their healing power? Usually it's the ones that attract you that work best for you.

  1. I've never attended a show like this. I had no idea gems and stones were so popular! I would always go and try something new like this.

    1. If you're ever in my neighborhood, please let me know. I'd love to meet up with you and show you the sights. Thanks for the blog visit and have a great day!

  2. This looks like an interesting event, Nancy. I like the amethyst crystals. #MLSTL

    1. Thanks Natalie for your comment and visit. Amethysts as associated with the spirit. Violet and purple are great colors to use for meditation and help with transformation. Be well and thanks for dropping by from #MLSTL.

  3. Hi Nancy - they're so beautiful and I loved that fossil at the end too. Nature has so many gorgeous creations and it would have been amazing to walk from one to the next all under one roof.
    Thanks for linking up with us at MLSTL and I've shared on my SM 😊

    1. Thanks Leanne for the visit, comment, and share on SM. A big thank you for hosting #MLSTL. Nature is certainly amazing and seeing so much beauty is uplifting for the soul.

  4. Hi, Nancy - We have a similar show in our area. I love it and try to attend each year. Thank you for sharing this. #MLSTL

    1. So delighted you enjoy yourself at your local gem show and appreciate the visit from #MLSTL. Have a sparkling day!

  5. Hi Nancy, what a fascinating show and crystals are beautiful. Like Leanne the fossil at the end was one of my favourites. Crystals hold a fascination for many especially their healing properties. Thanks for sharing on #MLSTL and I will be sharing on SM.

    1. You are so right Sue about crystals holding fascination for many especially their healing properties. Lately I have been learning more about that topic and hope to blog about it this year. Thanks for hosting #MLSTL and appreciate your support.
