It’s that time of year again! The Denver Gem and Mineral Show is coming. Although not nearly as huge (and overwhelming) as the Tucson show in February, Denver is the second largest gem and mineral show in the U.S. -with dealers and buyers from all over the world. Some people actually like it better because it is a little calmer and easier to navigate.
BarlowsGems will be participating. We show at the Ramada Plaza Hotel (formerly the Holiday Inn Central). We are located in the tent in the north parking lot space T12. We will have our usual display of gorgeous designer cabochons and a large selection of our popular bargain cabochons, as well as decorator polished rocks, stone eggs, stone spheres, gemstone animal carvings, rough rock, mineral specimens, and more!
We will be open from September 6 -13 and we open early (9 a.m.!), so come early to get a parking space!
The Ramada Plaza Hotel is known as the Colorado Mineral and Fossil Show. It is a wonderful show with more than 200 fine dealers from around the world. It is officially open Sept. 7-14.
