I was fortunate enough to attend the final show at the Tucson Gem show in February with a friend Robyn Hawk who I met through an online jewelry forum. She acted as my personal guide and give me a tour of the wonderful exhibitions of this year's show. The theme was mineral oddities and we marveled at the amazing shapes and stones on display. these photos give just a small sampling of the wonderful exhibits we saw that day.
