My Show and Event Schedule

      I conduct a major portion of my business at the most important shows across the US. Between shows and en route to them I call on individual collectors by appointment. I can also arrange to have private showings for small groups of collectors. In addition to shows, I host open house events from time to time and meet with collectors at my office-showroom by appointment.

Leonard Himes     Dealer in Fine Mineral Specimens

         Our Summer show cities will include Colorado Springs in June, Rapid City, SD in July, and Springfield, MA and Lebanon, PA in August.

          In September we will be part of a new Just Minerals Event and the Denver Main Show in September. I'll post details as those shows approach.


The West Coast Gem, Mineral, and Fossil Show​,  May 10-12, 2019, at the Hilton Orange County/Costa Mesa 3050 Bristol St., Costa Mesa, CA. 92626

     This long running show has traveled from Costa Mesa to Pomona to Santa Ana and is now back in Costa Mesa, a few blocks from its original location. It is an all ballroom event now and I will be working with Cal Graeber in the Retail Ballroom with many top quality specimens for your consideration.

   ​                                                   ****************

     When we are at home in Monument, we invite collectors to make appointments to visit our showroom. Email is best, but the phone works, too.

     We also make stops to see collectors as we travel, so let us know if you would enjoy a private showing or would like to share your collection with us. When we know your collection, we can better serve you with suggestions for specimens that would be good additions to it.

                                                                   2019 Spring Shows 

Colorado Mineral and Fossil Show, April 12-14 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel on I-70 in Denver, CO.

      This show is now in its third year in a fine convention center venue with lots of free parking and nice hotel for overnight visitors. If you fly in you can get a shuttle from the nearby Denver International Airport. There is large group of regional and national dealers. I'll be there in booth 6 the same a last year as Leonard Himes. I'll have retail fine mineral specimens fresh from Tucson and a table of high quality specimens at half price. You can find more information at:















Texas Mineral and Fossil Show, April 26-28, 2019, Lone Star Convention & Expo Center 
9055 Airport Rd, Conroe, TX 77303.

        This is a new show designed to replace the Texas Fine Mineral Show with an event appealing to a larger population of collectors. The facility is only a few miles north of the former show's Woodlands location. There will be minerals specimens, fossils, and jewelry dealers. I'll be at the front entrance as Leonard Himes, showing fine mineral specimens and debuting fifty superb specimens from a private Russian collection of Dalnegorsk minerals (If it ever shows up!).You can learn more at or
