This is our last year at the Denver show and our last show in the Denver area! This year we will be featuring many specimens from our trip to Bulgaria, including sphalerite, galena, calcite, and quartz, many in beautiful combinations. We also have a large selection of minerals from Namibia (aquamarine, amethyst [many enhydros], schorl, fluorite, and more) and Morocco. We have fluorite, calcite, and plumbogummite from China, pyrite cubes from Spain, fluorite from England, and many more. We still have a lot of affordable fossils, including fossil tortoise shells from Nebraska, Megalodon shark teeth, shark and elasmosaur teeth from Morocco, trilobites from Utah and Morocco, large agatized fossil coral from Florida, fossil oreodont and other mammal teeth from Nebraska, and petrified wood from Arizona and Indonesia. Because we are moving and need to greatly reduce what we have to move, we'll have many flats of half-priced specimens and several flats of specimens at 75% off. You can preview many of these on our website .
Thanks for all your support and friendship over the last 20 years. Hope to see you there! Pat & Zelda, GEOdyssey LLC
