I would like to invite everyone for new show, dedicated only to collectors – no fossils, no meteorites, no beads - only collectors minerals – The Mineral City Show.

PostPosted: Jan 20, 2019 15:27    Post subject: The new University of Arizona Gem and Mineral Museum  

A note about the new University of Arizona Gem and Mineral Museum kindly supplied by Alex Schauss


Dear Colleagues:

I wanted to alert you to a new four-page article that appeared in the January 2019 issue of Rock & Gem magazine about the new University of Arizona Gem and Mineral Museum that will open in 2020 in downtown Tucson. It should be easy for anyone to increase the size of each page doing click and then enlarging to make it easy to read.

With one year to go to try to open the new museum next year this is the time we especially need donations. Donations can be sent to: http://gemandmineralmuseum.arizona.edu/

We will also be holding a fund-raising auction for the new museum on February 8 at the Westward Look Hotel on Ina, at 6 pm in the hotel’s large ballroom. Scores of excellent specimens have been donated by dozens of dealers for this occasion. This is an opportunity to acquire exceptional specimens and help the new museum. Peter McGaw will be the auctioneer.

For me, as in years past, the "Tucson Shows" start when Adam Wright and Erika Aheimer arrive from Tasmania with the past years findings at the Adelaide Mine. New this year were pineapples!! Not organic ones though but ones based on lead and chromium. Adam was able to extract a handful of unique specimens from the roof of the mine and named the best one "The Pineapples" for obvious reasons. You can see some photos below and a brief video at:

more to come,
bob

I am excited and thrilled Peter to be able to be bringing the newest finds from the Colorado quartz mine to the main show. I found another stunningly spectacular specimen this weekend and I am hard at work on getting it prepared before the show it is a large piece with Incredible crystallization.

Dave, any chance you have in-situ photos of the gold you can share? I decided to go to the main show this year instead of the early shows and it looks like I made the right decision. Between the Wulfenite displays and your newly recovered gold I’m going to bring extra tissue to wipe up the drool!.

This was found last weekend and is turning out to be one of the most incredible specimens I've ever seen. I will post two more pictures of it and then leave the dramatic reveal for the main show as it is a stunner

This is it about 10 minutes after I pulled it out of the vein. You can see that is covered with black manganese oxide. The longest side on the largest crystal is 1.8 cm :-)

Pictures do not do it justice. You get lost in and in all of it when you see it in person :-)

All these recent pix of gold and crocoite are very nice.......great new specimens, but I would like to see them as part of their full context. Are they being taken to Tucson to be in display cases or be for sale. If for sale are they already spoken for or available (no prices, just status).

I am going to ask the admin and Peter how I can answer this question and stay within guidelines and policy of both this forum and the main show. I will respond accordingly after I get in touch with them

This is a non commercial site. Please no prices, please no commercial promotions.

Okay, then I will rephrase my question. Will your newly collected specimens be on display in Tucson, and, if so, where? BOB

PostPosted: Jan 22, 2019 09:33    Post subject: Re: Tucson Show 2019  

There is indeed a fine line between advertising and informing. From my perspective, I post photos of special specimens that I think would be of interest to anyone who is into mineralogy. I also think these special specimens will soon disappear from public view - so this may be the only time the public will get a chance to see them.

But I think we all recognize that some level of advertising is intrinsically involved in these posts - just don't over do it.

The new crocoites are brought to Tucson for sale from The Adelaide Mining Company who have had the same room (241) at the HTCC for years. A basic internet search will provide all contact info for them.

Thanks Bob K,

I personally have no commercial interest in the new specimens. However field collecting for many years and being privileged to find some hi quality examples, I have always been especially interested in seeing truly new hi quality specimens being found in other parts of the world. When attending Tucson, and other shows, I make a special effort to see the newly found material. Bob

Dave

Thank you for posting the field photos. That is truly an incredible find! I especially love the photo of the specimen covered in manganese oxide. You can see the potential teasing us through the veneer. I would have needed to be resuscitated.
