Tucson Gem and Mineral Show Recap 2020 + Insider Secrets

I’ve been visiting the Tucson Gem Showcase for about 15 years now and one of my favorite things that I get to do is share it all with you!

Yes, we already know that Tucson is filled with mega-watt crystal energy around gem-show time.

When I’m there I find myself kind of like in a trance or sort of crystal-drunk. Then you have come down from that high when you get home. ** I know I’m not the only one who gets that feeling while there.**

But the magnetism of Tucson IS NOT  just about the crystal energy. Yeah, it’s partly that but then amplified way up by the healing energy of the land itself.  You can read more about my take on that here. 

And then layer on top all the crystal lovers gathered there from around the globe in one spot — it’s the whole atmosphere! It’s total MAGIC!

If you’re thinking about heading out (and if you’re a crystal-lover I think you should try to check it out at least once in your lifetime), I have some insider secrets, resources, tips, tricks + wisdom on the absolute … Read More

My Fort Myers Gem Show Adventure

Sometimes the build up is better than the actual event.

What’s that saying?…

It’s all about the journey…not the destination.

Def. the case for my recent trip to this local gem show.

Fort Meyers Gem Show

Even though this gem show was a bit of a dud for me, I still found an amazing specimen…so not a total wash!

Check out my vlog of this gem show below. In it I cover:

  • Fake ruby! & story of someone getting dupes out of $5K
  • A very knowledgeable & reputable rock hound
  • Fire Quartz
  • My new fabulously large Smokey Elestial Enhydro!

It’s always fun to check out a gem show in your area…no matter what, really!

2015 Tucson Gem Show Round Up

If you’ve been following me for a bit you know that late January/early February is TUCSON TIME!!


This is when my Sweet Hub, Frankie & I make an annual trek to Tucson, Arizona to shop, learn & see what the trends are with the most exquisite crystals in the world. Then I like to come back & report & provide all sorts of crystal-content to you, GORGEOUS SPARKLY Crystal Hottie. 🙂


Unlike in years passed, I’m not selling any of these specimens. I may decide to do a summer time flash sale (of other specimens) if my schedule permits, but that’s up in the air. Stay tuned to my Glitter Update for any news on that.


I’ve been visiting the Tucson Gem & Mineral Show for many years now & documenting what I’ve been up to while out there on my blog. Here are a couple of my posts from my recent trips:

And I recently did a blog post with my Tucson Gem Show Shopping Tips for Crystal Hotties here.

I also shared … Read More
