Could it be that the unusual effects of these recent weather conditions are proof that true climate change is upon us? Yes it looks like the inclement and deleterious effects of the bazaar and extreme weather is proof positive that the planet is, in fact, going through a definite climate change. Blizzards, storms and record temperature ranges are affecting many people in unusual places.
In fact, Opal dealers here at the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show in Tucson Arizona are having to put their Opals away for fear that the extreme cold will damage them as they are up to 25% water and too fragile to be out in the freezing temperatures. A lot of people here do not have heat or even water because of frozen pipes. If this isn’t an indication to people that we are in the midst of great climate change, then it might be because they are not standing outside here with us at the show!!
These people are taking pictures of some common minerals, however, we were able to find some new unseen mineral combinations. Like, blueish green Emeralds in Pyrite, Amazonite with Smoky Quartz Points…
and these Amazonites from Argentina that are so blue that it almost looks like Larimar.
We are still looking for more Flames of Ishtar™ and so far we have only been moderately successful. We have not found as many as last year.
So wish us well!!
