My First San Francisco Crystal Fair

This past weekend I had the privilege of working my friend Dave Richter's Rocks & Relics booth along with his son in the Great San Francisco Crystal Fair at Fort Mason in the Marina District of San Francisco. Below is my report in pictures.

View of the main hall at the Great San Francisco Crystal Fair.

Despite being in a side room and not in this main hall we were actually more directly aligned with the front door which helped us.

A rather remarkable piece of amethyst from Artigas, Uruguay,  featuring hematite on calcite atop the amethyst.

This tourmaline crystal features in order from left to right the color variations known as Indicolite, Elbaite, and Rubellite.

Tsarovite garnet crystals

Guess who?

Crystal Fair owner Jerry Tomlinson who is Gem Faire's biggest fan--just ask him!

  1. I went to the Crystal Fair in SF on Saturday too. It was also my first time. I hope Rocks and Relics is there for the next one because there is more that I would love to purchase from them. Rocks and Relic please come back to the Crystal Fair!
