Here is one more set of beautiful images from the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show..... these amethyst "butterflies" are just incredible! Truly dazzling! They seem really "out of this world" don't they? Photos courtesy of Susan Dodson.
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. (:
