Again, I was a little too excited at the fact that I was there and saw enormous gems, and I hence did not take a lot of photos at the show, but here we go!
A couple of notes, during the period of this show, it’s like entire Tucson became the show ground, many traders booked hotels to use the hotel rooms for exhibiting their rocks and stones.
Or exuberant dealers / sellers have sat their allocated booth in the huge panelized houses, which will take you hours and days to stroll through till the end.
I was very lucky to be there with the two ladies! The lady on the left on the first photo, named Naoko Fujinami, is my master of crystals and she is the first disciple of JaneAnn Dow, the crystal reader & healer. And since Naoko has friend networks with miners and dealers, I also have got a opportunity to meet / greet and talk with a few of them out of her friends.
I hope these photos share the joy how I was excited at being surrounded by rocks at the show. 🙂
Naoko, Gary, me. Gary mines, polishes, and trades the minerals called Euphoralite
Two Euphoralite mineral deposits. The left is complex of blue tourmaline and mica. The right contains high in lithium.
Saiko, aka ‘the wise-woman of aroma’ aroma specialist, on the left. Gary Fleck, and me. Gary is an old friend of Naoko and he has been doing one stop shop of rocks. He has love to the rocks and his polished crystals and minerals are spectacular.
Just part of his huge lineups. I am so glad to meet to him, which was my long standing hope since I first got his handled crystals two years ago.
I set a new category on my blog menu, which is ‘quartz & minerals’. This is one of where I bring my passion to apart from photography and drawing, but had not been introduced / talked about in here. So here we go. 🙂
I had never got interested in those rocks before, rather I was annoyed when they came to me in the form of gifts or souvenir. I had not that having a clear idea why I was annoyed with them, and even now I can’t. I must have felt something intense energy from them, I do not know..
Anyway, I started having more interests into them over a given time, and, ..alas, I have small collection of them by now. 🙂
I hope I will be sharing about them with you time by time.
