Leonard Himes     Dealer in Fine Mineral Specimens

Later  this Spring, we will be at the Dallas (Plano) TX , and the Colorado Springs (Pikes Peak ), CO shows and will post details here.

We welcome appointments for showroom visits in Colorado when we are at home.

Follow us on Facebook, too at   www.facebook/leonardhimes.1


We will skip summer shows for a little vacation travel, but when we are at home we will be happy to have you visit our office showroom by appointment. I'll be working in my prep lab, too, so check it out.

​We will return to shows in September at the Just Minerals and Crystals Event in Aurora on Sept 7-13. We open at 2 PM on the first day and stay open late, as a preview for early birds. We will be the first show to open during the Denver Showcase. Beginning on Sept 15 we will be at the Hardrock Summit - Evolution in Downtown Denver until Sept. 18, yes, that is a Monday, a first for a US show!

        The Texas Mineral & Fossil Show at the Plano Event Center in greater     Dallas, May 18-21.

This was the second year of this show in Plano for the Leonard Himes booth. We will have our same booth location as last year in the sunny Windhaven room with most of the show top dealers. The Plano Event Center is a wonderful location with lots of free parking free admission and a food concession. Thanks to those of you who attended and supported the A-list of mineral dealers. Promoter Sandra Gonzales did a great job of publicizing the show and we had lots of attendees who said this was their first ever mineral and fossil show. Extra thanks go to Sandra for 'growing a new crop' of collectors.

The Pikes Peak Gem, Mineral and Jewelry Show

in the Norris-Penrose Event Center, Colorado Springs, June  9-11.

This is our hometown show, as Monument is only about fifteen mile north. It is a fun show in a spacious facility and features many local field collectors with their recent finds. There are of course, national calibre dealers in gems and mineral specimens, too. This is  great show to combine with a summer trip to the Colorado Rocky Mountains for relaxing, fishing, and rockhounding. The Leonard Himes Booth will show a wide area of quality minerals many at half price, and our famous $1 box for kids of all ages to rummage through in search of treasures. We are known for loving native copper and copper minerals, so you can be sure we will feature them. In fact I just acquired the finest Michigan copper I have ever owned and will display it prominently along with other from around the world

New to our inventory, this Michigan piece will have its first showing at this show. (10 inches tall!)

           The Tucson Fine Mineral Gallery Spring Open Weekend. May 12-14.​

                                   It ought to be called a Symposium!

If you missed the Spring event, you missed excellent lectures on Arizona locations by top Arizona field collectors. We had a pleasant weekend with relaxed time for conversations and dining on the patio. There will be another similar weekend in November, so look for the details that I will post as the time grows near. It might work nicely to combine an autumn trip to Socorro, NM for the excellent Symposium there and make the one day drive to Tucson  the Fall event at "the Gallery".
