Several opal dealers can be found at various Quartzite shows. This one is set up at Cloud's Jamborie every year.
Many of these people who come to Quartzite are "Snow Bunnies". This implies to people who normally reside in the northern states but sojourn here during the winter months and go back home when the snow melts. Inotherwords, they hop from place to place.
There are items here of all varing tastes. It could be a $3 cabochon, a $500 gemstone, or a large dinosaur bone costing thousands of dollars. There was one dealer who specialized in Coprolites. Coprolites are Dino Poo (fossilized shit). There were some that were very large and expensive.
Coming to Quartzite
The town of quartzite is normallly very small and includes a McDonalds, a Wendys and some other restaurants, stores, and fuel stations. But during January and February the place becomes a fairly sized city of Motor homes, campers, and various storefronts selling all kinds of goods from scissors to huge amethyst geodes.
Quartzite is in Arizona along the I-10 Freeway twenty miles east of Blythe, California.
