Budil Fine Minerals – Fine Mineral Show Tucson 2015

Dave Wilber spends some time talking with Marcus Budil at both the Pueblo Gem & Mineral Show and the Westward Look Show during the 2015 Tucson event.

The highlight of this interview is the incredible emerald specimen that we first saw at the 2014 Tucson Show. This year Marcus was kind enough to loan me the piece for a few hours as I ran back to my hotel room to film it. Usually we try not to show repeat specimens but this is a clear exception. Absolutely amazing!
