Denver 2016 - Coliseum Show

Last Updated: 15th Sep 2016

By Jolyon & Katya Ralph

This is a LIVE report, keep this page loaded for live updates - new images will appear as they are added.

I'm now at the Coliseum show, starting with the tents outside.

Big Quartz - oceanic linkways

'Canyonlands' malachite

Mostly wholesale material at the tents

Jars of opal. Opalos Romero

Have you got any drites?

Amethyst cathedrals

Big calcite in Uruguayan amethyst

Impressive stalactite slice.

Gratuitous amethyst shot

Inside the arena

Burmese tourmaline at Spirifer Minerals

For those upset with the previous "citrine" photo. from Shannon & sons

No comment needed

Gem trees. Much easier to look after than Bonsais

A crystal duck. Yes. A crystal duck. I cannot think there is anything else worth reporting on here after this.

Oops the duck was dug and is being sold by Tate from Washington Treasures.

These pictures are great and the commentary is excellent...when you come back you may want to change your photo headers because they say "Denver 2026". Thanks for the show reports!

Those are some fantastic prices for the Burmese tourmaline, hopefully there will be some left when I get there Saturday!
