Had another great time at the show this weekend! It gets better every year, new friends, old friends and some fantastic gems and minerals. One of the best things about our show is we focus on local material from old collections. We have several dealers who specialize in this type of merchandise.

Jacquot & Son Mining booth.

The new bumper stickers were a big hit for rockhounds and treasure hunters.

Ron Seaver had a great selection of gems and minerals including one of the largest rutile crystals ever found at Graves Mountain.
