denver gem and mineral show!

well, glenn and i had a date today. mimi and pops kept the girls and we went to the denver gem and mineral show, then the wynkoop brewery downtown. it was AMAZING! i spent a lot more than i intended to, that's for sure. but here's what i got:

from top to bottom, left to right: flourite, fossilized algae, picasso jasper, septarian nodules, tiffany stone, cobaltan calcite druzy, crysoprase, prehnite, opal, rocky butte jasper

prehnite and chrysoprase, from australia

and this here is shamus, also from australia. his prices were absolutely incredible!




and some close-ups...






i cannot wait to get home and make some beautiful pieces for you with these new stones!

Quite a nice afternoon spent...i would have been the victim of my own indecisiveness there...thanks for sharing all those pics. I never knew Denver had a gem and mineral show. Sue♥

Very lovely stones you bought. I really need to build up my collection. What you just bought is probably more than I have total. Our gem show is this weekend. Yay! I get so excited a few nights before I can't sleep. I can't stop thinking about the treasures I'm going to find there. Have fun creating!
