Gem, Mineral and Jewelry Show Offers Variety of Merchandise and Artistry

The Rickie Report is looking forward to this years’ 47th Annual Gem and Mineral Show presented by the Gem and Mineral Society of the Palm Beaches.  This show has something for everyone in the family!  Kids will love seeing fossils or have a geode cut in half as they watch and wait to see the mother nature magic that will be inside.  The natural artifacts dug from the earth will fascinate even the most “jaded” among us.  For those who are renovating, you may even find sinks made from fossilized wood!  And here you can shop for jewelry made from magnificent beads or the beads themselves to make the jewelry!

A group of like-minded mineral and jewelry enthusiasts gathered at different homes to discuss their interest in these fields. In January, 1966 the Society was officially chartered as a Florida corporation, with its stated purpose being to provide a place for gem and mineral collectors to gather and share in their hobby.  The Society has shared its vast knowledge in our community. This was achieved by presenting a series of hands-on mineral lectures to various Palm Beach Schools.

Beads, Stones, Minerals!

Beads, Stones, Jewelry, Minerals!

 

The Society’s largest public outreach is its annual show.  Each year, for the weekend before Thanksgiving, the Gem and Mineral Society takes over the Expo East Building of the South Florida Fairgrounds to hold its Gem, Jewelry, Bead and Fossil Show.  The show features a wide array of dealers who carry merchandise from all over the world.  Additionally, Society members come out to spread the word and educate visitors about the Society and the hobby. The show features a Demonstration Area, where members showcase the many classes offered to members of the Society.

In the past, the Society has had special exhibits that greet visitors upon entering the Expo building.  Past attractions have included: a Moon Rock from Apollo 17, two Ruby statues weighing several thousand carats each, and a life-size photo of a Mastodon skeleton (as well as actual bones from the dig) that the Society helped unearth in Palm Beach County.

 

Mining Flume

Mining Flume

One of the Show’s biggest attractions is the Mining Flume.  This is a running water flume where guests can buy buckets containing filler materials and rough mineral specimens.  Sitting at the flume, visitors sift through the materials in the buckets, guided by Society members who help visitors identify what they find.  Visitors can keep anything they find in the bucket, and kids love taking home their beautiful stones.

 

Rocks and Fossils!

Rocks and Fossils!

 

There is also a Fossil Dig!  Kids love digging in the sand to find and keep real Florida fossils.  Again, guided by members, the kids learn about the fossils they are finding, and are always thrilled to leave with a bag of treasures!

 

Sink fabricated from Fossilized Wood

Gem Society members love to share their knowledge with the public and generate new interest. Within the Society, classes are always ongoing for members who want to further their skills.  Classes include cabochon cutting, faceting, wire wrapping, chain maille, beading, enameling and so much more. Scholarships are also awarded to members to attend one of two lapidary schools; Wildacres or William Holland.

The Gem and Mineral Society of the Palm Beaches remains a thriving organization that aspires to share knowledge and join people together through a common interest.  Whether out in the community or attending small classes within the Society, our members love to swap information and skill sets with anyone willing to learn.  The Society, celebrating its 50th birthday in 2016, is still going strong and sharing a love of stones with the world!

 

Join the fun at the the South Florida Fairgrounds Expo Center on November 23rd and 24th.  For more information visit:  www.gemandmineral.cc   or call  561-585-2080.

From Under the Earth to Jewelry Worthy: Intarsia and Cabachons

Once you understand how a piece of rock from the earth becomes a shiny, polished part of a piece of jewelry, you will appreciate the expertise it takes to create it.  The Rickie Report admits to being a lover of mother nature and it most awestruck when an everyday rock becomes a magnificent ring, earring, or part of a necklace.  We asked Jeff Ursillo, a past President of the Gem and Mineral Society of the Palm Beaches to share some information with us. Intarsia is a geometric design, similar to marquetry.  Check out this post to see some incredible examples!

The Society would like to extend congratulations and thanks to the “Rockhound” Editor, Jeff Ursillo for his induction into the Eastern Federation of Mineralogical Society’s Decade Club.  This Club recognizes newsletter editors who have served their clubs for over TEN years!

TRR:   How did you get interested in being a “rock hound”?

JU:  A customer at the print shop I work at told me about a gem and mineral show that was coming up and I took the family to it as a fun “family” event. I had never been exposed to minerals before and was amazed at the colors, shapes and overall beauty of the mineral world. I was hooked!  We joined the Gem & Mineral Society at their next meeting (December 1995)

 

TRR:  What types of things does the Gem and Mineral Society of the Palm Beaches do  at their meetings?

JU:  A typical meeting consists of a short business meeting (15-25 minutes) a break for refreshments and then our program for the night. We have door prizes and raffle items at all the meetings. Our programs are always “hobby related”. We usually have speakers, but occasionally do demonstrations, show DVDs, and have member “Show & Sell” nights.
Rhodacrosite

TRR:  What if I don’t know anything about gems or minerals but I just appreciate “mother nature” and the beautiful formations I see in rocks?
JU:  The Society is full of helpful people who are willing to share their knowledge or identify a mineral specimen.We have a large library that is available to members to withdraw books or DVDs.
Intarsia

Intarsia

TRR:  Please share how you take a natural rock and make a cabochon out of it, ready to be set as a piece of jewelry.

JU:   If I’m starting with a rough piece of material, the first step is to cut slabs about 1/4 inch thick using a diamond bladed rock saw. Once the slab is cut, an area is marked off and using a smaller diamond saw, the desired area is trimmed out to the approximate shape or “blank”.  The blank is then taken to a series of grinding wheels where it is formed to the final shape. Using a series of finer and finer sanding wheels the stone is polished to a brilliant shine.
TRR:  The Gem, Jewelry, Bead and Mineral Show is your big fundraiser.  Tell us more about how that has grown over the years.
JU:   When the show first stared in 1966 it was held is a side room at the Auditorium, also known as

Intarsia

Intarsia

the Leakee Teepee. There were seven dealers from the West Palm Beach area. As the years went on and the show became more popular, it moved out onto the main floor of the Auditorium and hosted  20 dealers. Display cases, which featured members work or collections of minerals were added to the show. A demonstration area was added where the public was introduced to the art of lapidary.

When the Auditorium was sold, the Society moved west to the South Florida Fairgrounds. The larger area allowed us to add more dealers, expand the display and demo areas. The show now features over 65 dealers, a large demonstration area and a children’s area with a Carolina style flume mine, fossil dig, geode cracking and so much more!
The Society is a great place to learn about minerals, fossils, jewelry and many related areas. We offer over 25 classes, ranging from Cabochon cutting, beadwork, wire wrapping, and chain making, to name a few.
