For two weeks every winter, the world meets in Tucson as it becomes a bustling, international marketplace of buyers and sellers at the Tucson Gem, Mineral & Fossil Showcase.
The “Gem Show” is much more than a single event at one location. Rather, there are thousands of participants and attendees at more than 40 sites around town. Dozens of shows take place at the same time – in giant white tents, at hotels and resorts and at exhibit halls.
There’s something for everyone at the many open-to-the-public shows – from gold and diamonds to granite bookends and glass beads, and from fine specimens of dinosaur fossils to opals dug from the Australian Outback.
The Desert Dove Bed and Breakfast a great place to stay while taking in the Gem and Mineral Show. You can start your day with a cup early morning cup of coffee or your favorite tea watching the birds. Enjoy a wonderful breakfast. At the end of your long day of shopping you can relax in our hydrotherapy spa with a glass of wine and take in some stargazing!
