world wide mineral tribe
Tucson Gem and Mineral Show.
They say a picture speaks a thousand words,
then these musings are already very lengthy :)
There is so much to experience here at the Gem Show.
This is just a tiny sampling of the treasures
I am dancing through every day...
absolutely amazing people and stone people at every turn.
Just a few more days of the show
and my 20th year with this world wide mineral tribe comes to an end.
A milestone for Maile Stones.
Thank you for being an awesome companion
on this incredible journey thus far
and the adventure continues...

allowing you a window into its mysterious world...
🌬Gem Silica Juiciness 🌬
GEM SILICAGem Silica is a blue green and most rare variety of chalcedony...

This particular piece

and it's color and quality are amazing...
🍀 Grossular Garnet Goodness 🍀
Soothing the nervous system,
Opening the heart,

When I feel this green garnet on my skin
I there is a calming.
I notice the receiving of my breath.
I notice the beating of my heart...
