Someone went to great trouble to carve this one. It took a lot of time to carve out the ball at the center of what appears to be the sun. I am told that the ball points directly to where the sun sets on winter solstice. With the care and non-random orientation, I think it is safe to say that this one had some meaning and was probably not graffiti or random drawing.

PostPosted: Feb 15, 2015 14:39    Post subject: Tucson Show 2015 - Coverage  

Atlanta Airport 02/15/2015

As this time Tucson was so well covered for others (mostly by Matt ;-) that I should be grateful because it gave me the chance to maintain a reasonable high amount of work in Tucson without the mandatory compromise to publish posts to keep people informed. Thanks Matt, thanks Jean, thanks to everybody who published posts here!

Many more posts will come, I'm sure, specially from Gail The magic of Tucson, 2015. Gail Spann report and I will also publish in about a week my final conclusions about the Show, information about the new finds, as well as my favorite specimens in the Main Show, so stay tuned! ;-)

More to come...

PostPosted: Feb 15, 2015 21:07    Post subject: Re: Tucson Show 2015  

Today was the last day of the Main show. The main show was very crowded with many full parking lots. I only saw one new case, that of a new find at the Rowley Mine, AZ.

I drove past the I-10 hotel shows on the way to the Main Show and it looked crowded. I didn't go in to see if the people were all there packing up, or if there was any selling still going on. I also had an errand to do at the Inn Suites and it looked to me like everyone was packing up.

Matt,

I have really enjoyed your report and photos from the Tucson shows. Thank you for the great effort! I visited the shows for 2 weeks myself, and I am impressed by how many venues. dealers and photos of interesting specimen that are included in your report! Except for a few important specimens at high-end dealers who did not allow photos, I believe you have truely captured the mineralogical essence of Tucson 2015.

I felt almost relieved when I saw the red chair, the cardinal and the mineral-free landscape.
You have done a superb job Matt!
It's one thing to take pictures for yourself at a mineral show. But it's another thing to do it for a demanding community such as the FMF folks.
Now the frustration of not having been there is almost gone!
Thank you.

A big THANK YOU to everyone who posted pictures of the Tucson Show. It takes a lot of time and effort. On Valentine's Day several of the venues had signs posted that the parking lots were full.

Missed a bunch of e-mails, am just now getting around to viewing them. Someone needs to stand a little closer to their copy of Dana's system, in that the formula posted on the label for Azurite is incorrect. As everyone knows, Azurite is a carbonate, not an arsenate.. Just picking nits.

More later,

Ed

PostPosted: Feb 21, 2015 15:22    Post subject: Tucson Show 2015 - My 10 favorites from the Main Show  

Barcelona 21/02/2015

Already in Barcelona and slowly reconnecting my neurons, here you have my 10 favorites of the - all wonderful - specimens displayed in the Show Cases of the Main Show.

I can't find my papers where I listed from who were each show case of these specimens. If someone can let me know by MP then I will add it to the images. Thanks in advance.

More to come...

I am told the blue year. This year, the META was a case filled with great specimens, filled with blue minerals. Thinking forward bunch.

PostPosted: Feb 21, 2015 15:54    Post subject: Tucson Show 2015 - Some personal thoughts  

OK, here I am sitting in front an empty white computer screen and I'm not sure if I can translate in written text the kind of dementia that is Tucson.

"Gigantic" "Crazy" "Excessive" - all of these words and much more can be used to describe the phenomenon of Tucson, but no one can really understand what Tucson is without being there and feeling (and in some way suffer) its thumping intensity. Tucson is beyond comparison with any other mineral show. Neither Munich, Denver nor Ste. Marie can compare with this hungry monster chewing up all of the dreams, money and hopes of so many collectors.

What I can say about Tucson 2015?
Can I describe the good feelings of many dealers (compared to previous years) or the desperation of others?
Can I describe the phenomenal purchases that some wealthy collectors made in Tucson or the disappointment of many other humble collectors who can afford almost nothing that they really like?
Can I describe the physical impossibility to attend all of the events or the pleasure from attending some stupendous parties, talks, social events, awards or ceremonies?
Can I describe the kind of unnatural bubble which is Tucson moving away from the real world, or the pleasure of being for some days outside of the common troubles of our daily life while enjoying a kind of communal excitation?
Sorry, but after more than 25 years attending this show I can't find a proper way to describe what Tucson really is, so this year what I will do is to try to simplify and summarize my thoughts about the most popular topic in Tucson every year: "Why hell the are prices so high?" ;-)

I am a dealer and a collector as well so for many years I guessed that the mineral world of the collector was perhaps going in a wrong way and that this wrong way could bring to all us to a kind of collapse, mental or economic. From time to time, and mostly in the European shows, I still have this pessimistic feeling, but the dynamism of regular Internet sales and the brutal energy of the Tucson Show tends to clear my mind of this negative feeling and, although I'm not totally sure about it, now I am starting to believe that this hobby seems to be influenced by the same market laws that influence many other major hobbies, and that currently the number of buyers of very fine specimens seems to be quite higher than the real number of fine specimens in the market. Very elevated prices for these fine specimens are now with us and maybe will not decrease in the future. Another topic is why so many lesser specimens have such inflated prices, but this is another story…

So, are there no chances for the not very rich collectors, like myself? Well, yes, there are still some chances, but instead of remaining immobile complaining about too high prices what we should do is work harder, looking at all dealers, all stocks, all boxes, all remote places, in fact doing everything in order to try to find something available within our limited possibilities. Just walk and walk and walk and walk and watch and watch, and watch again, to finally find something we like that we can afford.
No more complaints! Collectors, move your asses and work, the reward is there! Do many prices look too expensive to you? Forget these prices and search for something with a better balance! In Tucson you can play this game because the show is so huge that everybody can have a chance, but you must forget your dreams to acquire a "Master Piece" for a cheap price for the same reason that you can't purchase a Picasso for a modest price. Due to the different style of the new wave of collectors (many quite young but very rich) who seem to consider minerals as "natural art," you are in the same league with art buyers, even if you do not like it. Thus very high prices for the best, with just some very limited opportunities to find bargains, and only if you have a really extensive knowledge of what you are collecting.

I disagree with the feeling that many collectors have who believe that dealers have a kind of wonderful life doing almost nothing. Myself and many other dealers that I know work extremely hard, we do not have a peaceful and easy life at all. For me, after a monumental effort for more than a month, an effort that most people will never experience, I'm finally back at home, exhausted, missing greatly my "normal life," and with just a little money in my pocket after paying the never ending invoices that such a large show generates. Then, you may ask, why do I do this? Am I a masochist? Of course not. I do this for the rewards I derive. Together with "some money" I also brought home to Barcelona some, not many, but some, lovely rocks that I will add to my collection and, in fact, this is the same reason why so many collectors attend Tucson year after year, and this is our real reward.

Forget the easy-funny images published in this and other Forums or social net sites supply. They are just the "tip of the iceberg," the reality of the Tucson Show is much more complex and sophisticated than this and only if you attend Tucson can you discover what I'm talking about. So why don't you discover this overreaching bazaar at least one time? Believe me, it is an experience and you will never forget it!

Jordi

Sure Roger, it will be a great honor, but who is the "great humanist philosopher"? ;-) probably John, my original text was dreadful! ;-) ;-)

I too like the idea of showing one's 10 favorites. Perhaps more of us should do this at the end of all major shows. My selections for Tucson, however, would be very different from my bosses' (Jordi) 10, except perhaps for the rhodochrosite. Note the dominance of European minerals in his selection.

Here is one of my favorites from the main show. The amethyst in the back from Artigas, Uruguay. Sad to say I did not take other photos of favorites.
