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.

 

Cuff Bracelet made with Cabachon

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.  

 

Copper Art

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.
