Tucson 2013 - The TGMS Show

Last Updated: 20th Mar 2013

Tucson 2013 - The TGMS Show

Finally, a little overdue but better late than never, the TGMS photo report from last month's Tucson Show.

The show prepares to open the doors to the public.

And the public queue up ready to enter.

The theme of this year's show is Fluorite, and we had the great fortune to have found this incredible fluorite specimen, called the Weardale Giant, within the last twelve months. See this article on how it was collected.

We were visited by Lauren Megaw and her mineralogy student friends.

There was also a giant bony fake fish fossil walking around the show, presumably to remind the kids to feed their goldfish.
