Customer reviews of this show
High quality of Peruvian minerals
The dealers that have been going to Rapa River for years are the best, for me it’s a safe place to go for quality minerals, their treatment is also really good. I was able to find excellent quality of peruvian minerals in a large stan at the back and couldn’t find in other shows, the man goes every year I highly recommend to visit
Nice and unique
There’s some handmade stuff there that is unique and I didn’t see anywhere else in Tucson, some crochet, wire wrapping, lots of options and seemed like great prices.
Great show! Easy to get around great variety😁
I want buy some kinds of tourmaline
I want introduce some kinds of Pakistani stones and tourmaline
Dealer defrauding buyers with fake fossils marketed as real
I visited the Rapa River show on April 10th and was sold what was represented to me by a male dealer towards back of interior open lawn area, as an authentic fossil crocodile skull for $60. Upon my return home to the east coast I researched the piece online and found that it is a common fake made in morocco, whereby the skull is made from a mold with teeth inserted to defraud unsuspecting buyers into believing they are buying a real fossil.
The dealer should be identified, confronted and not be allowed to continue selling. I’ve been to this show at least 20 times over the years and this is the first time I’ve ever been sold a fake anything. I’m extremely disappointed the Rapa River Show and would not recommend. There is zero quality control.
