2021? What about next year?
Well, the Tucson Gem and Mineral Society (TGMS) theme for 2020 will be World Class Minerals and that will be fine. But the theme in 2021 will be Fluorescent Minerals. 1996 was the last time this theme was presented. 2021 promises perhaps the largest exhibit of fluorescent minerals ever seen.
Conrad North of the Fluorescent Mineral Society (FMS), reports that the Society has “secured a large, dark, display area in a room just off the main display floor at the Tucson Convention Center. This area could accommodate approximately 100 fluorescent display cases, compared to the 78 featured in 1996.”
Can you imagine that? One hundred UV display cases filled with glowing rocks from around the world, good displays, Tucson worthy. Although the traffic bothers me around the Big Show weekend, I plan on going. You should, too.
The dates of the 2021 TGMS Show are February 11-14, 2021.
I am a proud sustaining member of the FMS, although they still list me as an individual supporter.
