The Tucson shows are quickly approaching. Over 100 gemstone species, many of which are rarely seen faceted will be shown as always at the Coast to Coast Rare Stones booth at the GJX show, #1436. I hope to see you there! There will also be a nice selection of American gemstones including Montana Sapphire, Sunstone, Benitoite and Hiddenite to name a few.
