The Tucson Gem and Mineral Show® 2018 General Displays Part 1

The next two posts feature some of the general displays at the 2018 Tucson Gem and Mineral ® Show. This will feature some of the exceptional display cases that were put together by private individuals or clubs not included in the previous posts, or in the Quartz face off or Lidstrom Entries.


While many displays stuck to the show theme such as various crystal habits for specific mineral types, or twinning on certain minerals, many did not keep to the theme as it was not as definable as in previous years. Nevertheless, the displays were fantastic as usual.
