At the Main Show this afternoon. Just as few quick pics, and yes all Mexican despite the theme of Western Europe which delivered some super exhibits. Mexico is well represented in the competition cases with cabinet size specimens of the Mexican classics.

Today I went to the main show and then to the Fabre/Spann party at Casa Vicente.

I photographed some cases at the main show. First are Western European minerals from the Canadian Museum of Nature, Ottawa - I particularly liked the galena, strengite, and ferberite.

PostPosted: Feb 13, 2015 01:04    Post subject: Re: Tucson Show 2015  

There is a row of quartz cases, two of which I photographed. The first case is amazing lab grown quartz. Fun to look at but it does bring up an issue. In pict 0936, they show a picture of a broken Guerrero and then the specimen after they have regrown the points back on. I have no problems with this so long as it is disclosed (and the fellow doing this told me that he always discloses and often laser etches his initials on pieces). But what if someone unscrupulous tries to pass off a broken but regrown specimen as natural? The tips on this piece are all wrong for a Guerrero, but what if someone did this to a clear quartz. I wonder if there is an easy way to tell the lab grown stuff from natural material. If not, are we going to have the same problems we have had with wire silver?

The second quartz case shows a systematic review of twinning laws. Interesting.

Next up is Barry and Beth Kitt's case, and it is exceptional. Assembled are fantastic clean pieces all of a similar size. The blue cap tourmaline toward the middle really caught my eye. I know others will disagree but i think this is the best blue cap I have ever seen - it is so much cleaner than the others I have seen and it really glows in a case that doesn't have the best lighting. Wow!

Next are two fluorites and one pyrite from Luis Burillo. I may have photoed the fluorites before, but I just love the terahexahedral xtals on the Jaimina and the clean cubes from La Viesca.

Some of the exhibits to follow. The first case I saw walking in yesterday was Les Presmyk's sphalerite case, all from Mexico. Some really good specimens in that one.

Other exhibit cases included Tom Hales with a full Mexico case. The piece that caught my eye was a miniature of cadmian yellow smithsonite from the San Antonio Mine, Santa Eulalia. Just for the bright yellow color.

Bill Besse with a nice doubly terminated quartz from Bacoachi, Sonora....not a frequently seen locality....actually a new one for me.

More from the competition cases.
A lovely wulfenite from Los Lamentos and a pyrite from Santa Eulalia. Someone put up a pyrite case which contains a great variety of crystal forms and localities. Very nice.
