Margaret,

When you arrive all of the hosting hotels/motels will usually have
free copies of Colored Stone’s Tucson Show Guide. The thing is
cross-indexed by vendor, what they vend, and geographical location of
their origin. So when you get there, pick one up and peel through the
indexes. There are so many they can’t really be listed, but hopefully
some wonderful Orchidians may respond w/ their favorites.

To get a head start look at tucsonshowguide.com Not sure how detailed
it is, but may help you w/ a lot of other stuff if this is your first
time at the gem show.

Good luck, (you’ll have the time of your life and maybe we’ll see
you at the Orchid dinner – I’m assuming there’s an Orchid dinner
this coming year).

My favorite is Donald Olson at GJX, booth 1516, 1518. You also might
like Gary Wilson, same show, 1035 & 1135. It’s best to get there as
early as you can to get best pick. For boulder opals but there a
number of people in the same show with lovely ones that I’m sure
other Orchid members will recommend. I also love wandering around in
some of the smaller shows in the motels along the freeway. Lots of
Brazilians there.

Happy shopping,

Beverly

For Boulder Opals, in 2008 I thought that “The Opal Man” and “Opal
Graphics” had some nice stones in the reasonably priced category.
