it's copper

Well, the 2008 Tucson gem, mineral, and fossil show ended yesterday. It was a great showcase inspite of the traffic snafus, looming economic recession, rising prices, unpredictable weather (still the best in the nation), and other hassles.

We spent the last day visiting the premier show, the Tucson Gem and Mineral Society show at the Tucson Convention Center. This year's theme "Minerals of the USA" did not fail to impress. Display cases had collections from the Smithsonian, Carnegie, Royal Ontario Museum (Canada), and a number of private collections. I've uploaded a handful of pictures in Flickr and will continue to do so in the future (click on the link).
