Part 1 Post Denver Mineral Show


Kelly mine blue smithsonite is world famous and Virgil Lueth explained why it is blue.(ex-Peck collection)

For many decades I’ve enjoyed attending the September Denver Gem and Mineral Show put on by the Greater Denver Area Gem and Mineral Council. I’ve watched it grow from a very fine local club show to become the center of a major show event surrounded by a group of satellite shows. Collectors agree Denver has the best Mountain region show event in the West. To many, including this writer, Denver ranks just behind Tucson as a must attend gem and mineral event.

The Denver Show has always had good lectures at show time, but in 2018 it reached what I consider a pinnacle seldom reached at any club show. The chosen theme for 2018 was “Minerals of Mexico,” a subject every collector loves and every collection benefits. The lectures covered in depth this very important region and its endless production of superb minerals of quantity. With ten experts lecturing on the subject the Council put together an amazing and most informative program on “Minerals of Mexico.”
