What you will find at the show: This is the Giant of all Gem Shows, the largest of its kind in the world. For two weeks every winter, the rock and gem world meets in Tucson as it becomes a bustling, international marketplace of buyers and sellers. The "Gem Show" is much more than a single event at one location. Rather, hundreds of thousands of of show-goers, retailers and collectors, and over 4,000 vendors and dealers, make their largest and most important gem, mineral and jewelry transactions at nearly 40 sites throughout Tucson that take place at the same time — in giant white tents, at hotels and resorts, and at exhibit halls. There's something for everyone at the many open-to-the-public shows — from gold and diamonds to granite bookends and glass beads, and from fine fossil specimens to opals dug from the Australian Outback. Many shows, however, are "Wholesale Only" shows and require proper identification for admission. So, as most of us in the industry are fond of saying, "See you in Tucson!"
