I'm hoping to attend. Have never been to a mineral show before, though. Not sure how it will go!

My boyfriend and I went to this show. First, the place was PACKED. Both of us totally forgot that some people interested in minerals are into mysticism, etc. Those people were... well... "interesting"...

I was overwhelmed. SO much to look at. Had I been there alone, I'd have "seen" more. I saw some very nice specimens. I was disappointed at the lack of New England material, though I did find some nice little items way beyond my non-existent budget.

Was nice to see some minerals in person that I had admired in photos.

I ended up buying three simple specimens, SODALITE, KYANITE, and CELESTITE. As you can see from my photo, there is a running similarity... COLOR!
