The annual Tucson Gem and Mineral show is a huge event that draws more than 100,000 to the city each year to look at hundreds of thousands of minerals, gems, meteorites, beads, pieces of jewelry, and other items that rock and gem folks just love — and all of it’s for sale. The show is the big event for the meteorite world and brings together hundreds of dealers and collectors. This year, Editor David J. Eicher spent 5 days checking out the "satellite shows" and the main show, talking to collectors and taking video.
