Trip Report: Good Friends, Food, and Minerals in China during the end of August to early September 2006. The Chinese mineral community are gracious hosts. It is absolutely amazing to see how Chinese collectors and dealers continue to develop new sources of quality minerals.

Trip Report: Munich November 2007 was tremendous. The show is a first class professional event that clearly shows that the organizers planned well and worked very hard. Compared to Tucson, the show provides a central venue for the visitor to view and purchase great specimens except for those of us who are not Euro based...big ouch with the exchange rate!!
