Gem & Mineral Show, Denver, CO
— September 18, 2018
The New Mexico Bureau of Geology Mineral Museum took first prize in the museum display category at the 2018 Denver Gem & Mineral Show. The show theme was "Minerals of Mexico," which took place September 14th-16th. Each year, the Denver show hosts nearly 100 exhibits (both competitive and non-competitive), which are constructed by curators, collectors, and prospectors. Displays vary in content and design, with many highlighting world-class minerals that reflect the show theme. The NMBG Mineral Museum staff decided to showcase some of their best Mexican minerals, with good results!
