This is this year's Gem Show treat for myself.... and it's not beads.
I stopped by the Pueblo show today while I was out and found a bargain. I'd been admiring the Crinoid fossils since I saw the first huge panel of them 3 years ago. At that point they were too big (5' tall) and out of my price range ($900 - $1,000). This vendor was packing up and offered me half price, I countered and got it for 1/4 the marked price. It's beautiful and quite detailed. Now to find a place in my little adobe to put it. The colors will go quite well on a wall here.
