The Denver Gem & Mineral show has high quality gemstones/crystals at low wholesale/show pricing. Most retail pricing for similar gemstones/crystals is 5 to 10 times the cost of what I can get at the show. Allowing me to shop for you gives you the best bang for your buck. I have over 11 years experience working with gemstones and crystals, and identifying and selecting high quality genuine gemstones/crystals. The price includes the cost of the gemstone/crystal, packaging, and personal shopper fee. Please allow for those extra costs when considering the value of the crystal you will receive. I always shop for the highest value gemstone/crystal that matches your budget. If you would like to receive a specific gemstone or a higher quality gemstone/crystal consider purchasing the Specialty Gemstone/Crystal item which allows you to specify exactly what you want me to shop for.
