The first weekend in June is the traditional meeting time for our annual Gem, Mineral and Jewelry Show. This outdoor show is known throughout the Southeast as both a fun and a friendly show. The show is sponsored by Alabama Mineral and Lapidary Society with demos, exhibits, children's activities, and door prizes. Various geology—and jewelry—related groups have booths at the show. The show will showcase and sell gems, minerals, fossils and jewelry. This event is also great fun for kids. They can begin a gem or rock collection that may develop into a fun hobby to be enjoyed for a lifetime. There is no additional entrance fee for the show.
