Petrified tree trunks

By Stella Inger. CREATED Feb 6, 2014

TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - This year's gem show is underway until February 16.

If you haven't had a chance to check it out, there is so much to see. In fact, we sent Stella Inger for a sneak peak of what's in store!

With more than 4,000 vendors in town, you'll need more than one day to catch it all.    

The petrified tree trunk exhibit features wood from Tucson trees that's more than 200 million years old. Pieces like these go for nearly $19,000!  Elizabeth Ortegas' father makes them.
