This is SPECIAL exclusive content here on my blog just for those of you on my email list who let me know that you were interested in seeing our fun little side trip to Bisbee, AZ. We always like to do an offshoot side trip while out in Arizona for the annual gem show to take advantage of our time there by seeing something unique and different each year.

Sorry, it took 6 weeks to get this ready for you. I spent a bit of time editing this up. Hope you enjoy it! 🙂
Bisbee Turquoise Mining District

Here are a few links in case you ever decide to head out there… which I HIGHLY recommend!:

  • Copper Queen Mine Tour
  • Bisbee Mining and Historical Museum
  • Old Bisbee Brewing Co. Restaurant 
  • Old Bisbee Ghost Tour
  • Bisbee Turquoise Hunt – you get to mine for turquoise in April!

What was 🔥HOT🔥 at the Gem 💎 Show? Pink Amethyst + Sacred Geometry

Hibiscus Moon tucson, Videos Leave a Comment

For those of you that don’t know … the Tucson Gem & Mineral Show is the crystal lover’s mecca, an annual get-together, like a crystal convention of sorts, in Tucson Arizona.  There are other gem shows around the USA, but this is the one, the one!

Every year, I go to the show and it seems like there’s something that stands out; something that a lot of vendors are talking about, that there’s a lot of buzz around.  So, what was HOT at the Tucson Gem & Mineral Show this year?  Pink Amethyst and Sacred Geometry. It was the hot topic and so let’s jump in and take a look.  Just click play to watch my video 🙂

We also have this Vlog transcript pdf that you can download right here.

Did you attend the Tucson Gem Show this year? Did you notice the Sacred Geo talks?  Have you seen Pink Amethyst before?  Have you worked with it?  Share in the comments below.

Ready to go with me on my annual trip to the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show?

My Other Tucson Gem Show Blog Posts You May Be Interested In:

  • All about Last Year’s Gem Show (and info about the surrounding healing vortex!)
  • If you’d like a thorough Tucson Gem and Mineral Show Primer (plus Insider Tips!), I have a classic blog post here all about it. I think anyone who loves crystals should get familiar with what this “show” is all about, have all the details and make it a bucket-list item to get out there at least once in your lifetime.
  • If you’d like some clever gem show shopping tips (not just for Tucson), I have another must-read classic blog post over here all about that.

The first show of many separate shows I mention in the above vlog is the Kino Show at the Kino Sports Complex – it’s one of the larger shows, kind of away from some of the other ones off Ajo Way (yes, gorgeous ajoite is named after this area where it was first discovered!):

The Kino Show has literally EVERYTHING from all around the world (not just crystals…rugs, carvings, statuary, clothing, etc)! 


This year I went back to this show 2 or 3 times (lost count) and I did a livestream from there towards the end of the show season to show you how EASY it is to get great deals on crystals (a bit of gentle haggling)… because sellers want to unload so they’re not carting all the heavy stones home.

Check it out:

The large crystal cluster featured below was dug at Ron Coleman’s Mine in Arkansas. He usually has two locations at the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show but his BEST OF THE BEST specimens are always located at his location at the Mineral and Fossil Co-op on Oracle Rd where this photo was taken.

I hope I was able to capture just a sliver of the mega-energy and excitement from this year’s show for you to enjoy.

Hey, I’m thinking of also editing up some video from our side-trip to the Bisbee Turquoise Mining District out in Arizona too. Please let me know in the comments below if you’d be interested in that and I’ll get on it! 

Have you experienced the unparalleled crystalline experience of the Tucson Gem Show yet?  I’d also love to hear about that in the comments below. What did you think?

Musings from the Tucson Gem Show 2017

Here’s my Tucson Gem Show Update from 2017!

I’ve been going to the Tucson Gem Show to revel in the crystal energy & share it all with you here on my blog for some years now.

Here’s a round-up of past visits and here are some insider shopping tips should you decide to put this on your bucket list!


Now, on the surface, it may seem the reason Tucson was first chosen 63 years ago as the world’s annual meeting spot for crystal & mineral lovers is b/c it’s been a mining mecca for quite some time. However I feel there’s an energetic component to it as well…
Healing Vortex
Did you know…that there are 5 spots in the Northern Hemisphere near 31.7 North Latitude that are considered to be healing vortices….and Tucson is actually part of 2 of them?

Of course it is. 😉

Specifically, the epicenter of the vortex is located in the Tohono O’odham Nation Reservation just west of the city:

But its energy torus extends outwards for possibly hundreds of kilometers.

An energy torus is a 3D spherical shape, expanding out in all directions with a spiral motion…so that would include the city of Tucson.

and Tucson is right along that path as well.
(You can check it out by zooming out on that map above). But let me just tell you…you can feel it…as soon as you set foot in the town.

You can find out about the other healing vortices here.

Tucson is also home to some really intense residual volcanic energy, having experienced several episodes of major volcanic activity, going back as far as 200 million years ago up to as recent as ~20 million years ago. One of the more recent eruptions was super-violent & quick,  causing the volcano to collapse in on itself to form what’s known as a “caldera”.

That’s what the city of Tucson actually is…
a volcanic caldera surrounded by a healing vortex!
Personal Musings from the Tucson Gem Show
This year I noticed a spiritual theme that was happening for myself & seemingly everyone I was surrounded by.

It seemed there was an immediate manifestation of crystals we needed or wanted in synchronistic ways! This kept happening over & over for almost everyone I talked to. I love being blown away by synchro-mysticisms like that. 🙂

I know I’ve talked about this in the past…however, it hit me harder this year than ever before…perhaps getting older makes this part of it more intense?:

***I feel that the immense power of so many crystals on planet converging & concentrating their energy in 1 spot like this makes it a very intense place to be. So much so that when I go home I have a hard time re-integrating back into “reality”.  A sort of mild depression takes hold. This time for longer than usual. And I talked to others that this happened to as well. You better believe I employed some crystal depression-busting techniques for this.***

In the past , I’ve even felt hungover on certain days while there.

To avoid feeling like that this time I listened to my body & rested when I felt like I needed it. BTW…it’s extremely hard for me to stop & do that while in Tucson (Hello FOMO!) But I did it. This trip it hit me about 3-4 days in to the trip. I started sleeping like a log for 12 hours each night! I don’t do that ever these days due to hormone fluctuations so that was really surprising, but I know doing this allowed me to integrate the intense energy while also uptake any & all energetic & info downloads or DNA upgrades (yes…I feel those were happening!)
2017 Trend
And just as a geo-geek observation, I noticed A LOT of the fake green quartz this year.


And people were buying that shiz up. In case you have no idea what it is & how to spot it, I have a blog post here on that.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my share of Tucson 2017 … what’s your favorite part of the video or favorite picture?  Tell me in the comments below. Perhaps you got to go to Tucson this year?  Did you spot any fakes? OR see any mind blowing specimens?  Please share in the comments.
