Minerama 2006 at Glen Innes – WOW! A long weekend of fun and festivities for many hundreds of visitors and another successful weekend for traders. It was certainly great to catch up with some familiar faces and continue to supply our fine Reddestone blues to an appreciative audience. We were lucky to have a prime spot inside the Glen Innes Services Club so we had many interested visitors throughout the weeekend.
Most traders reported good steady business over the whole weekend – Aussie Sapphire had a fantastic weekend with excellent sales of rough sapphire to many buyers – some new customers as well as those who have supported us over the past year. We would like to thank everyone for this fantastic support as it makes all the hard work worthwhile. The photo below shows a lineup of customers looking through the selection of rough on offer – lots of interest there and many good sales made.
We also had excellent interest in our new line of gemstone beads featuring black spinel and sapphire from our mine on the Reddestone Creek.
The weekend also featured a number of fossicking tours, some to our own property on the Reddestone Creek – more on this in the next blog post.
There was certainly an abundance of fine gems of every colour and type at Minerama, as well as a great selection of fossils, mineral and rock specimens and fine/costume jewellery. Something for every taste and budget. If you missed Minerama this year, pencil it in on your calendar for next year – March 9-11, 2007.
Cheers for now from Aussie Sapphire
