Pueblo Gem and Mineral Show (River Park)

The next show we went to was the Pueblo Gem and Mineral show (to add to the confusion, it is also called River Park ) We had lunch at the Bennigans there. We were early and got served very quickly. Maybe a little too quickly, Dev's burger was still mooing. Being the in intrepid rockhound that is he, he ate it anyway. After all.. there were rocks to see!

Two boys show us what the Tucson show is all about! Amazing rocks and enthusiasm! There were several vendors working in their booth. This one is working on a cabbing machine. A cab is a gem or stone that has a smooth domed surface.

There is so much to see. It's hard to know which direction to look first.

Pink Kunzite and aqua...I think!

The gentlemen from Poor Boys Opals out of Australia were very gracious in sharing their knowledge about opals from Lightening Ridge.

This dealer had some wonderful mineral specimens!
