The Tucson Mineral show dates back to 1955. It started with just a few exhibiters in the cafeteria of a local elementary school. In 1973, it grew as gemstones were officially added to the mix. Today, gemstone, jewelry, and mineral enthusiasts from all over the world head to Tucson for these eclectic shows. Jewelry Television is always on the scene scouting out the next great deal for you!
I arrived in Tucson late Monday afternoon. The weather was beautiful, sunny and clear. I was anxious to catch up to my JTV associates as several were already in town. I wanted to get an update on what treasures the Jewelry Television Gemstone Buying Team had found so far!
Waking up in Tucson--here is the beautiful greeting outside my window! I had breakfast with the team. I learned that they had found some interesting Sphalerite, Ammonite, Trilobite, and Pyrite.
Today, I found some very fun, interesting and historical items that were mined in Madagascar. Here are some pictures to represent just a few of these times. When you learn about this interesting country--and how many thousands of years these items took to form--you will be amazed.
Every year in Tucson, we celebrate JTV Co-Founder Jerry Sisk's birthday. It is the one night in Tucson we all get together to celebrate "family night" and all have dinner together. Here are a few pics to share some behind the scenes with the JTV family. - Dan
