"Tucson Gem & Mineral Society's Winter Show Highlights"
presented by: Mary Pat Weber
* 68 years running, this four-day event remains the largest, oldest, and most prestigious gem and mineral show in the world. With their theme, “SILICA - Agates and Opals and Quartz, Oh My!” approximately 250 dealers sold varieties of minerals, fossils, jewelry, and lapidary. The show also featured lectures and symposiums, jaw-dropping exhibits from private collections, and displays from major universities and museums.
"Petrified Forest of Calistoga, CA"
presented by: John Cook
*Calistoga in Napa Valley is not only home to therapeutic hot springs, mineral spas, the purest award-winning sparkling mineral water, but also to a spectacular petrified forest of Redwood trees. About four million years ago, the now extinct Mount Saint Helena volcano let loose a blast which flattened a forest of these immense trees, and its ash buried and preserved them frozen in time.
