Join the World's Biggest Treasure Hunt

Jan. 30 through Feb. 14, 2016

For two weeks near the start of every year, Tucson becomes playground number one for the world of international gem and mineral trading, buying, bargains and bragging rights. Here's what you need to know.

It's More Than One Show

"Gem Show" sounds like a single site, but the Tucson Gem, Mineral & Fossil Showcase happens all across town at more than 40 sites, from giant halls to hotels and sprawling camps of roadside exhibit tents. Almost all shows are free and open to the public. You can get the details (and zero in on your interests) with the search tool on this page.
