It’s that time of year again.  Time to take a break from the freezing temperatures and head out to Tucson and find all sorts of new and exciting things from around the world.  New crystals and that means new Fireflys.  The first week of February is the best time to visit the shows and see vendors from all parts of the globe.  It’s tough to find a room there but if you love crystals and gems there is no better place to see some of the best specimens you’ll see anywhere.  Fireflys will be there for a week, discovering new crystals and looking for new ideas.  It’s also the best place to meet new contacts for any aspect of the lapidary industry.  If you get a chance to see this show do it.  And look for exciting new Fireflys coming in February.
