Tucson Gem & Mineral Show 2006, Part 2

On February 3, 2006, I visited the Tucson International Gem & Mineral Show for a second time. This show ran from January 27 to February 12, 2006 at many locations around Tucson. As always, there was a wide variety of interesting items for sale from all around the World, from an illuminated giant Quartz crystal…

And a naughty army of carved stone penises, some in anatomically impossible sizes.
