There really is no substitution for seeing a beautiful tourmaline upfront and personal. So I am off to see a wide part of America and Canada with gemstones in hand. I have never taken the northern route to the west coast and I plan on seeing a crossing of Montana and British Columbia on my way to the first showing of the collection in Vancouver. Al, who put this site together deserves a private showing before a public meeting. Then south to a friend’s place in Oregon. Then sinking in to California and a private meeting or two with gem people. Finally a return and maybe a stop in Arizona, threw Colorado where I went to college for five years in the late 60s. I hope to see some memories and stop in St Louis to strut my stuff again. The whole adventure should devour the month of July and I hope to get some good posts along the way.
I plan to keep sallying forth, because America deserves to see beauty and I enjoy providing it with the collection.
