First of all, a magazine editor approaches us to produce an article about turquoise of the Southwestern United States. To begin with, this article is for InColor Magazine, the official magazine of International Colored Gemstone Association (ICA). As a result, we highlight turquoise mines in Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, and Colorado. Consequently, this article includes both natural turquoise examples and corresponding turquoise jewelry .
In addition, you may ask “how does this come about?” Most interestingly, an editor of the magazine, searching the internet, comes across one of our other websites: Tucson Turquoise. Notably, the Tucson Gem Show is here every January/February. Ultimately, the editor thinks it is appropriate to feature a local turquoise business in their magazine.
In the long run, the editor of InColor Magazine approaches us to write the article and supply our own photographs. In short, the editor herself works her magic and produces the beautiful article below. In addition, the editor invites us to their annual International Color Gemstone Ass. gala. Furthermore, the International Color Gemstone Association show occurs during the Tucson Gem Show.
Consequently, attendees of the gala include interesting people from all over the world: people who design jewelry, people who own mines, and brokers. Incidentally, in our experiences, we also have the pleasure to meet the guy who starts the Tucson Gem Show. In fact, the first gem show begins back in 1955. In addition, the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show is annual, typically beginning in late January and running through early February. As a result, it attracts visitors from all over the world.
Also, since contractors build the Tucson Convention Center in 1971, the show is held there. Actually, the Gem Show is spread throughout Tucson with exhibits and vendors in various locations. Ultimately, the founder, Mr. Dan Caudle, passes away in January of 2018. Finally, we hope that you enjoy the article! In addition, to see additional Turquoise advertisements, please click HERE!
