2017 Tucson Show Review!!

This was an interesting year for the Collector's Edge in Tucson. The dealer parking area next to the Hotel Tucson City Center was made available at the last minute by U-Haul. This made for ample parking spaces during the show. Unfortunately, it came too late for most collectors who had already made their travel plans. The first weekend was rather quiet. Things did not heat up until about the 1st of February.The weather was beautiful for the entire run of the shows this year.

Preview the Upcoming Chenzhou & Hong Kongs Shows!

In mid-May the Collector's Edge Minerals will be at the 4th China (Hunan) International Mineal & Gem. This year, it will be held again in Chenzhou rather than in Changsha. Most dealers prefer the Changsha location, but we need to go where the show is! The Chenzhou International Convention and Exhibition Center is a very modern and beautiful facility. The show, held there last year, went very smoothly, except for the admission of hundreds of thousands of local residents that overwhelmed the booths of the dealers.Chenzhou is in Hunan Province, China. An area with long history of mining and specimen...
