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.
