Recorded at the 2018 Fine Mineral Shows: Tucson (AKA The Westward Look Show, Gail and Jim sit down with Bryan Lees, Jamie Newman, John Rakovan, Dave Waisman and Stephen Neely to address the issue of The Current State of the Mineral Collecting World and How we Preserve it for Future Generations.

This panel represents a good slice of the American mineral-collecting community. We have a Mineral Dealer (Lees), a Museum Curator (Newmann), someone in the mineral media world (Rakovan), a Show Promoter (Waisman) and a Collector (Neely).

Lots of great comments, suggestions and ideas.
