Phoenix Heritage Gem and Mineral show 2022!
Polman Minerals is proud to announce that we will be selling at the second annual Phoenix Heritage Gem and Mineral Show. This new show has been hosted by the Mineralogical Society of Arizona (MSA). Their first show was held on July 30-31, 2022, and they plan on having this Phoenix show twice a year. I attended the first show in July as a visitor and was quite impressed with both the dealers as well as the attendance. While at the show, I was asked by Chris Whitney-Smith, the President of the MSA, if I would be willing to sell at the second show. I told Chris that if I could figure out a good way to display fluorescent minerals in a well-lit room (without my large black-out tent), that I would give it a try.
The show will be held at the Radisson Hotel Phoenix Airport at 427 North 44th Street, Phoenix, Arizona 85008. To see a Google map, click here.
The dates for the show are November 5-6, 2022. The show opens at 9:00 am on Saturday and closes at 5:00 pm. On Sunday the show opens at 9:00 am and closes at 4:00pm. Admission is only $1.00, and parking is free! There will be an ATM available as well. There will be three ballrooms where the show will be held. I will be located in booth number 27 of the Cactus Ballroom (see map below).
Since this is my first time as a dealer at this show, I will be bringing only one 6-foot table. Since we expect lots of young kids to attend, I will be bringing only specimens that will fluoresce under longwave ultraviolet light. I will have some ultraviolet lamps for sale as well, along with plenty of my Longwave Education Kits. For those of you that collect the Mineralogical Record, I will have a stack of brand new (never opened) back issues for $5.00 each.
I invite anyone who is in the Phoenix area to attend this show and help make it a successful on-going show for the Phoenix area.
