Considered the largest jewelry, mineral and gem show in the North Alabama region, the Gem, Jewelry and Mineral Show offers an incredible display of every type and quality of gems, activities for children to participate in, lapidary demonstrations and displays by national and international dealers, fossils, and more. Hours are Friday and Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Hosted by the Huntsville Gem and Mineral Society, the Gem, Jewelry and Mineral Show is open to the public and features national and international dealers with every type and quality of gems, collector specimens, lapidary materials, fossils, finished jewelry (costume to fine), an impressive variety of gemstone jewelry, lapidary art objects, and jewelry and lapidary supplies. There are lapidary demonstrations (the sawing, grinding, and polishing of stones), faceting demonstrations (a machine that grinds down sides of gemstones to create the facet shape) and displays. One of the main reasons people attend the annual event is to see the huge selection of gems, minerals and fossils for sale. Serious collectors can find almost any type of rock, mineral or fossil and it is a great outlet for anyone just getting started in the rock collecting/rock hounding hobby. Your children won’t want to miss the Dinosaur Dig and kids’ activities based on our Pebble Pups Program. Plus we’ll have an hourly drawing for Door Prizes and Raffle Prizes!
