Gem Capers

This gem and mineral show includes jewelry, beads, gemstones, mineral specimens, crystals, fossils, spheres, meteorites, and lapidary equipment with over 30 vendors. There are several free exhibits such as members' mineral collections, the "Touch Table" of rocks and fossils, and a fluorescent mineral display of rocks that glow under special lighting. Enjoy demos on stone faceting, wire wrapping, and cabbing. Kids can partake in a dinosaur rub—putting paper over a dinosaur image and taking home a rubbing. The Gem Mine is set up for one-minute rummages through gravel to find polished stones to keep. Don't miss jewelry making, gemstone Wheel of Fortune, and hourly door prizes as well.
