Tucson's fabulous Gem & Mineral Show has been in town and, as always, there are amazing things to see. This fantastic "pod" is the size of a boat and it is filled with amethysts. Just gorgeous! The geode has been cut away in three locations so that you can view the sparkling interior. Wow!
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
