TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - The Gem, Mineral and Fossil Showcase is underway. Every year, it draws people from all over the world.
We sent Stella Inger downtown Thursday. She's outside Hotel Tucson City Center, formerly the Inn Suites.
43 vendors from all over the world come to Tucson for this event. There are 40 different shows downtown.
Even if you don't want to buy anything, you will learn so much about so many different things. We were able to see an exotic gem, "Ammolite." This is only found in Alberta-Canada.
This is located in room 217 in the hotel. You can buy small pieces of gems for just a few bucks.
