Tucson Show locations!

This year, instead of being somewhere in the hallway of building A, we are in building D, in a room dubbed "The Stope": D24-D26.

Where our new space will be!

(and what it looks like)

We will be doing the usual: signing up new subscribers, taking renewals and we have a lot more room for a lot more stock! We have some special things for sale this year, so be sure to stop by and see us!

We will also be at the TGMS "main" show at the convention center, February 8th through the 11th, Booth #1226.

At this show on Friday, February 9th, we will have a book signing for the book: Pegmatites and Their Gem Minerals from 1-3 pm. Author Michael Menzies and team will be there to sign copies of this wonderful book, which we will also have available for sale. Everything takes place in Booth #1226!

Can't make it to the shows? This book is also available on our website! Click the link below to order:



Tucson Mining Artifact Collector’s Show!

Tucson Mining Artifact Collector’s Show!


The annual one-day Tucson mining artifact collector’s show and swap meet is always held the Saturday before the weekend of the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show. Many mineral collectors always show up looking for interesting display goodies to complement their collections—everything from old miners’ carbide lamps to candlesticks, oil-wick lamps, frog lamps, safety lamps, dynamite boxes, tools, drills, blasting cap tins, blasters, mining-theme post cards and cabinet photos, artworks and mining ephemera. Some collectors may also exhibit a few of their not-for-sale favorite pieces. It’s lots of fun and good camaraderie. The show date is:


February 3, 2024

Free admission to the public at 10:00 a.m.

6245 E. Bellevue Street, Tucson (near Wilmot and Speedway)
