The Tucson Gem and Mineral Show® 2019: Non-Theme Minerals

Our next post on the 2019 The Tucson Gem and Mineral Show® is of minerals on display that are not related to the "Wulfenite is Loved" theme. There is an amazing array of shapes and colors in the public display showcases, and I handpicked some specimens that I found to be particularly interesting and photogenic for this post.

The Tucson Gem and Mineral Show® 2019: "Wulfenite is Loved" Individual Minerals

Continuing our show reports of the 2019 The Tucson Gem and Mineral Show®, this post features some of the individual Wulfenite minerals within the exceptional displays of the "Wulfenite is Loved" theme. Some of the best of species were on display in various public showcases, and we tried capturing a good variety of colors, habits, and localities.


Private collectors and museums did a great job putting together these displays and preparing some of the best Wulfenites for the exhibit. We tried to capture some of the memorable and photogenic ones that caught our attention. These include the fabulous "Red Cloud" Wulfenites, with their intense red color, and Wulfenite from the type locality in Bleiberg, Austria.

Wulfenite specimes from many of the famous Arizona Wulfenite localities are also well-represented in this post, including those from the Old Yuma Mine, Defiance Mine, Hilltop Mine, Glove Mine, Rowley Mine, Silver Bell Mine, and the Finch Mine. Important Mexican localities represented include the San Francisco Mine, with its "window pane" glassy crystals, the Erupcion-Ahumada Mine, with its butterscotch-like crystals, and the Ojuela Mine, with its many unique habits.


There were also examples from New Mexico (Stephenson-Bennett Mine), Utah, and some other interesting worldwide occurrences such as Touissit (bright yellow crystals), M'fouati (pyramidal crystals), and Urumqi (new Chinese occurrence of bright red crystals.) Of course the classic locality of Tsumeb was represented, and was especially memorable with the in the highly unusual blue "Chillagite" crystal.

The Tucson Gem and Mineral Show® 2019: "Wulfenite is Loved" Theme Showcases

The theme of this year's Tucson Gem and Mineral Show® was "Wulfenite is Loved." Wulfenite was recently selected as the state mineral of Arizona, and was therefore a very appropriate mineral for this year's show theme. Being highly aesthetic, and represented in many of the finest mineral collections, it made for a very appropriate theme mineral, with exceptional displays of outstanding Wulfenite featured throughout the show. This post features some of the important Wulfenite-themed showcases.
