Continuing with our reports of the 2019 Tucson shows, our next post is the 22nd Street show. This gem and mineral show takes place on the eastern side of the I-10 Freeway near downtown Tucson. It features a gigantic tent (the largest tent I have ever seen) containing most of the dealers, and also has an additional smaller satellite tent called the "Showcase."
The main tent has all types of mineral, gemstones, and jewelry dealers, and the Showcase tent caters to high end dealers. Like the previous year, which introduced the Showcase tent, the signature dealer was the Arkenstone, boasting impressive displays of exceptionally fine and highly photogenic minerals.
