Last week my mom and I went to Quartzite, Arizona for an annual gem and mineral show. If you ask my mom, she will tell you she went to "Crystal Light", Arizona. She just couldn't get the name straight. My aunt and her boyfriend invited us as they are part of a gem and mineral society and they go every year. It only took us 2.5 hours to get there. It was a pretty rad event and huuuuggeee. You could spend days there.
I wanted this pyrite heart like sooo bad.
I wore this dress I found in the pajama section of Eco-Thrift in San Bernadino. Pardon my black flip flops, we were on vacay and I was not expecting such warm weather. I had no other shoes.
Patting my weave in the desert heat.
Minerals are priced by ounces and grams, you know, just like drugs.
My bracelet I thrifted with Maricela for 10 dollars. Great bead work.
I got one of these large Selenite lamps for 30 dollars. Selenite is one of the varieties of gypsum. It is found in Morocco and has a hardness of 2. That was a fun walk back to the car.
The vendors set up their trailers like this as the show goes on for a while.
Mother gave me grief about wearing this dress with the tear in the back. I was sick as a dog 2 days prior to this event so I had no energy to sew it. People still told me they liked it...when they saw it from the front.
Rock people are people too,
