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 […]

Everyone Loves Blue Minerals. Right?

See...I'm on a blue mineral kick at the moment, b/c I got really excited when I found out what the 62nd Annual Tucson Gem and Mineral Show ® for 2016 Theme is. Can you guess? "Shades of Blue: Minerals of the World" I love Blue Minerals. ♥ I mean...can you think of any Blue Minerals you don't love?

Want to know how it all began? How I started working with Crystals

Transcript of the video:

First, I want to tell you about a couple of things.

A lot of you ask me about crystal skulls.

We actually get pretty in-depth into that in my Advanced Crystal Master Course. A magazine that I subscribe to Rock & Gem, in its August 2014 issue, had a really good article on crystal skulls called Art or Artifacts.

They tried to keep it relatively based in fact so that you can get a good overview as far as what’s what with the crystal skulls (giving you the facts) & then you can make up your mind from there. So, I thought that was a good article & I wanted to bring that up and tell you about that.

Then there’s the gem shows! The Tucson Gem Show is held every year in the end of January-February. There are some great online resources for the Tucson Gem and Mineral Fossil Showcase. They always have different things that are happening.

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!!

HM.GemShow2

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 […]
