Hello everyone!  BlueCapProductions has recently uploaded a series of video’s from the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show 2018. The Show is called What’s Hot In Tucson and It’s our favorite mineral show. World Class specimens and Incredible close up’s with information on each piece. We absolutely adore this show and thought you would as well! We’ll be sharing a few over the next few days but we encourage you to go to their youtube channel and check out the full scope of what they have to offer including mind blowing episodes from the last few years. We hope you enjoy as much as we do 🙂  Also feel free to let us know how you like these and what your favorite specimens are from each episode!
