Highlights from the 2014 Denver Gem Show

September 18, 2014

This year’s gem buying trip to Denver, Colorado was mind-blowing. For a Rockahalic like me, this show was heaven. I spent 6 full days shopping for crystals, gemstones and beads.gemshow

The International Denver Gem Show is the 2nd largest in the country and dealers from all around the world come to sell their treasures. The show has expanded over the years both in duration and in size. This year was the longest show going a full 10 days with 40% more dealers.

I started off the week at the outside tent displays at The Denver Coliseum. It didn’t take me long to make my first purchase. There sitting out in the sunshine on a large table were stunning Smokey Rutilated Quartz direct from Minas Brazil. Rutilated Quartz has a high vibration and helps make a connection to higher states of consciousness and awareness, while the Smokey in the Quartz helps to keep you grounded and connected to the earth plane. It seemed like the Rutilated Smokey Quartz was the guiding energy that lead me to all my future purchases the rest of the week, as I came home with a truly astounding assortment of stones.




I soon found my way to Red Sky Minerals at the Miner’s Coop section of the outdoor area. There I found these priceless, juicy Chrysocolla in Quartz specimens from Arizona. These beauties come out of a copper mine and are very rare. I’d been on the lookout for these stones ever since I was gifted with one a few months ago. The heart energy of these stones is off the charts. The owner, Sky Roberts, carefully cuts and polished each stone, relieving their natural polish and magnificence. These stones are the combination of Sky and Sea and are wonderful for Earth Healing Ceremonies.

I feel like traveled the world, buying stones from all over the planet.

Here is a short list of some of the gems that found their way to me at this year’s show.

  • Himalayan Healing Quartz with green Chlorite from Mount Ganesh in Nepal                                          quartz crystal
