The Collector’s Edge has made several significant changes to our Tucson Mineral Show locations for 2019. 

  • We will no longer have a sales venue at the Hotel Tucson City Center/InnSuites Hotel.

  • We will be joining 15 other fine mineral dealers at the brand new “Mineral City Show” at 516 W. Lester in Tucson.

  • We will be presenting our very finest mineral specimens at two locations during Tucson 2019:

(1) The Westward Look Resort–Suite 311.

(2) the Tucson Gem & Mineral Show @ the Tucson Convention Center.

If you are shopping for superb quality mineral specimens, please visit the following show locations:

  • Westward Look Resort @ 245 E. Ina Road, Tucson, AZ ... We will host preview showings of our newest fine mineral specimens in Building 34 - Suite 311 from February 1 – February 7, 2019.

  • This year, Collector’s Edge will be staying in Suite 311 as we participate in the 18th Annual Westward Look Show from February 8 – February 11, 2019.

  • Tucson Convention Center @ 260 South Church Street, Tucson, AZ ... We will be participating in the 65th Annual Tucson Gem & Mineral Show from Thursday, February 14 – Sunday, February 17.

The Annual Tucson Fine Mineral Show, better known as the "Westward look Show", truly is the highest concentration of superb-quality minerals anywhere in the world. Regardless of what you collect, plan on attending this don't-miss event from February 8-11th!

Once again we will be in Building 34 - Suite 311. Come see us there! 

This year's theme is wulfenite, so you definitely won't want to miss all the colorful exhibits from collectors and museums around the world at the TGMS "Main Show"!

In 2019, we will have two locations offering specimens for sale at 50% off of their retail sticker prices and minerals for sale by the flat. If you are shopping for attractive mineral specimens at bargain prices, you will not want to miss visiting the following show locations:

BRAND NEW SHOW – “The Mineral City Show” @ 516 West Lester Street, Tucson, AZ – Unit #9.  The Mineral City Show will be open from Friday, February 1 through Monday, February 11.

We are pulling out all of the stops for this new location!  We have prepared a huge quantity of never before seen specimens from worldwide localities and a large selection of fine retail specimens which have been reduced to 50% Off. 

Everything will be attractively presented in glass display cases with excellent lighting. This is not your ordinary “Keystone priced” mineral venue. You will want to shop this show early!!!!


 We will be sharing the new "MINERAL CITY" show with a great group of dealers from around the world. You will want to plan on spending a full day in Tucson's new "Mineral District", with over 50 dealers within walking distance! 

 Rhodochrosite  – Sweet Home Mine, Alma, Colorado

NEWS FLASH ... Collector’s and business owners will want to ask our sales staff at the “Mineral City Show” about a wonderful collection of classic, Sweet Home Mine rhodochrosite specimens which are being made available for the first time at Tucson 2019.  These important specimens had been assembled by Collector’s Edge as a “research collection” during the period of mining at the Sweet Home (1991-2004).  This limited number of Sweet Home rhodochrosite specimens is sure to sell-out rapidly.

Contact Phil at: phil@collectorsedge.com for more information or to make an appointment to see these specimens.

“1801 Oracle Road Wholesale Mineral Warehouse Show” – 1801 N. Oracle Road, Tucson, AZ  - Units #11 & #12 CE Wholesale will officially open for business on Monday, January 28 and will be open until Saturday, February 16, 2019.

This location has become a favorite of collectors, mineral dealers, and gift shop owners.  It is our earliest opening sales venue and perhaps our most well attended.  Shop early and often at this venue!   Unit #11 will feature wonderfully displayed 50% off mineral specimens and Unit #12 will be “filled to the rafters” with mineral specimens sold by the flat.
