Most noteworthy, we receive a telephone call from a New York base publisher, asking us to write an article about American turquoise. Consequently, the magazine wants a Tucson collector and enthusiast to add a local prospective of regional minerals. Subsequently, the publisher releases our article during the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show in February 2020.

Moreover, this is the official publication of the International Colored Gemstone Association (ICA).  In addition, this magazine is all about color gemstones, and this particular issue highlights gems of the Southwest. Finally, we hope find our article enjoyable and informative!
