Hunting for Fossils (the air-conditioned way…)

Hunting for Fossils (the air-conditioned way…)

Videono comments

This spring, I made the bi-annual trek to Tucson, AZ for the Gem and Mineral Show. An awesome array of gems, beads, stone, minerals – and fossils awaited me! Here are a few clips from the Mineral & Fossil Co-op on Oracle Rd, where some of the most beautifully detailed, restored fossils can be found. I’ll post images of my purchases over the next weeks so you can see what I look forward to working into sculptures. (Hint: ammonites, geodes, an egg and porta-joia from Rio Grande Do Sul, sea star and more.)
