Mineral, Fossil, and Gem Show

Fossils are cool. I, Zeb the Duck and Soapy Smith Duck went to the Mineral, Fossil and Gem Show at the Denver Coliseum.

Before we entered the coliseum, we examined the offerings from Mineralphil Madagascar.

This stuff is great!

These are fantastic.  And look at the blue hues in the stones.

The blue matches Soapy’s tie.  From Uruguay Amethyst we admired these trees and other sculptures.

Next mom admired some jewelry.  She really loves the green malachite.

The orange carnelian is beautiful.  These were from GLG Gemstone Jewelry.  Next we saw a ship.  This ship is carved from jade.

Here are malachite animals.  As we wandered toward the exit, we discovered this septarian from Madagascar.  Some septarian is also found in Southern Utah.

The geodes and the turtles were both incredible.  We really enjoyed seeing so much at the mineral, fossil and gem show.  We went just to look.  This is what came home with us.

Pendants and malachite animals now live at our house

The two pendants without boxes are Botswana agates.  Mom had never seen these before.  There is always something new at these shows.  We hope you visit a mineral, fossil and gem show soon.
