In addition to the fine lapidary and specimen dealers, there'll be a tailgate sale on Saturday. See you there!

Very cool! Wish i could have made it this year but the melt is happening fast and i still have 80lbs of kyanite waiting for a free ride down off the mountain this weekend. Take as many pics as ya can Rob :-)

Did you happen to see any Canadian kyanite at the show?

I'm headed in this AM for the tailgate. Susan is the photographer and she'll be back for breakdown. Maybe she can get some photos then? Bob Meyer is here and maybe he or anyone else can take some photos and post them here.

I haven't yet seen the show, so I'm not sure if there's any Canadian Kyanite, but it would be a welcome addition.

Hi Rob;

I could not make it Saturday so I missed the tailgate; sound like it was crowded compared to Sunday morning. Both the cases, and all of the others were well worth it. The case on the left photo had a few typos in the labels.

Hi Rob:

I am looking to connect with suppliers of tourmaline and tsavorite in Canada. Unpolished if possible. Are you able to help with any info on this?

Thanks and regards.
