...We had a chance to see what the Arkenstone had set out for sale the first day of WL show. These are, mostly, pieces that were once Herb and Moni Oboddas that were on display at the U of A this past year.

Last year I had fallen in love with this group of Kunzite after finding out that it was once a single mineral that had broken into three pieces. It had started to reheal and was, eventually, discovered. This was on display for the U of A over the past year.
Rob was gracious enough to show us how it went together.

Okay, I have lots more to post, but am tired and ready for bed. Will add more as I find the time. Tucson gem and mineral show is just a wonderful experience.

Thanks as always, Gail, for sharing with us the atmosphere and the people of the "little" mineral world at Tucson besides as the pictures of stunning specimens.
