What a magnificent display - Collection and Photo by Alan Meltzer
Every year around Thanksgiving
can you satisfy your craving for adventure at the big Gem Show presented by the Gem & Mineral Society of the Palm Beaches.
Find all the treasure for you to enjoy, dig for fossils, buy
gemstones, jewelry and other coveted items. You can even search for precious
stones yourself in the flume mine.
The volunteers of this club have worked very hard each
year to bring that beautiful show to you, and so many members of the Gem &
Mineral Society were on hand to demonstrate their various skills or show off
their fabulous collections.
It definitely was a feast for the eyes, - surely you also
were walking away with much information about rocks, minerals, gems,
fossils, beads, lapidary and pretty much every aspect of that hobby.
If you dedicated beads on the Neverending Necklace you can
see them in the picture below, and for questions regarding the club, just
click on its patch.
Thank you to the show committee and the board for letting
the necklace have a table at this great show!
