One of the highlights of our trips to Vancouver is a visit to Crystalworks Gallery, a gallery of fine crystals, minerals, fossils and stones, plus antique Tibetan singing bowls, Zuni fetishes, artworks by local artists, and photographic montages and medicine art created by Karen, one of the owners. Karen and her mother Susan, who is the other gallery owner, are regular visitors to Tucson, where they attend the annual Tucson Gem and Mineral Show. We're privileged that they stay with us and bring into our house many of their fantastic and beautiful purchases. If you're ever in Vancouver, don't miss their gallery! You can find information about the gallery on their website (www.crystalworks.ca), including the interesting story of how they got started.
