Photographer's Note

We were at the biggest mineral show in the world, which occurs in February every year, at Tucson, Arizona.
There are many shows, some are outside, some are into hotels, and there's one at the Convention Center. It's a picture from there.
The Convention Center show is where you can see the beautifulest minerals in the world, worldwide known collectors come to buy, and also to show themselves some pieces.
People like me can this way discover classical specimen, often already seen in photo in the specialized magazines.
That piece is an aqua-marine from Pakistan (Gilgit area), not for sale, of course, but which is about 25 cm wide !
It a long way, only for the show ...
Welcome to the mineral world, and let me know if you want to see more !
