Ok this is complex of vendors near fossil coop -- we get alot of our minerals from this show that we sell and make money to return each year to Tucson.

First one is Australian Vendor we get alot of the banded iron formation (really PreCambrian Algae) from that sells for us very well.

Some cool tourmalines and such another vendor

Nice Moroccan material at another vendor at this site.

Ok will move to new message for next going to Tucson City Center aka Old Innsuites for those who know the old nam.

No we just sell via shows like MAPS and a couple other midwest shows. Most of our inventory is in Carbondale with my partner...

Nice pix... thanks. Do you have any recollection what the price tag was on the palm leaf? Some of those multiple trilobite pieces look like false accumulations form here...

The desert photos remind me of how much I loved living in Tucson.

The fossils remind me of how much I chaffed at being a very poor postdoc with a family to support when the gem and mineral show came to town. My annual budget was $50, and I had to save up for that.

"First one is Australian Vendor we get alot of the banded iron formation (really PreCambrian Algae) from that sells for us very well."

...That explains why I can't find a decent piece that I can afford

Somewhere along the way I got the impression that because there was so much there in Tuscon (or maybe it was Quartzsite), the prices would be more affordable than you would see elsewhere, but either things have changed or I was wrong to begin with, because these prices seem as high as ever! The supply looks huge - I guess the demand must be also otherwise none of this would happen. :wacko:
