individual gem supplier that the Tuson show is unreal. He said that the
parking lots are full of stone dealers as well at this event.  People
sell out of their hotel rooms too. It woulld seem that the surrounding
area  gets involved in this major event. I would love to go some time.
Hope this tidbit helps.
