ONLY A WEEK AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!

The Grant County Rolling Stones Gem and Mineral Society presents our 30th Annual Gem and Mineral Show on Labor Day weekend. It will be at the Grant County Business and Conference Center, 3031 Hwy 180 E, Silver City (next to Ace Hardware). The free show, a great family event, will be open on Saturday August 31 from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, on Sunday September 1 from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm, and Monday September 2 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. The Lions Club “restaurant” will sell food and drinks.
This year’s show will feature over forty vendors from New Mexico, Arizona and California. They will display a wide variety of rocks, minerals, gems, beads, and lapidary tools and equipment, as well as many different kinds of jewelry. For kids of all ages, there is the Wheel of Fortune, where every spin wins a prize. A Silent Auction of rock and mineral specimens will be held throughout the show. Educational displays will be provided by the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology and by NMSU's Zuhl Collection.

Experts will lead daily field trips to local sites, weather permitting. Morning trips will be educational, featuring local geology and mining history. Afternoon trips will allow opportunities for digging and collecting rocks and minerals. Participants should bring a vehicle fueled for visiting the sites, plus plenty of drinking water.

See the following posts for a list of all the terrific vendors and additional information about the field trips.   We hope to see you there!
