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...
Also in Musings
HONDURAN BLACK OPAL
Honduran Black Opal is rare and unusual.

This seemingly simple grey/black stone
flashes a rainbow of color when the sun shines on its face
allowing you a window into its mysterious world...
GEM SILICAGem Silica is a blue green and most rare variety of chalcedony...
A highly silicated form of chrysocolla.
This particular piece
came from high in the Andes of Peru
and it's color and quality are amazing...
