It’s all put on by the Albuquerque Gem & Mineral Club. We’ll have over 50 dealers selling everything from amethyst cathedrals to Zebra rock, rocks and minerals inexpensive to moderately priced. You will find gems (crystals, faceted, cabs, rough, and set in jewelry), decorator items, and jewelry, books and supplies, beads, and lots more. We’ll have a mineral ID Booth, an educational booth from the NM Bureau of Geology and Mineral Resources (both a display and maps, books, and guidebooks), stuff for kids, and three silent auctions per day. We will have displays (about 20), most of them educational, all of them interesting! Displays provided by junior and adult members.
