28th Annual Gem and Mineral Show
September 1-September 3, 2012
 



This year's event will be held at the Grant County Business and Conference Center at 3031 Hwy 180 East in Silver City. The annual Gem and Mineral show is filled to overflowing with mineral specimens from New Mexico and elsewhere. Hours Saturday and Sunday are 10 am to 5 pm, Monday 10 am to 4 pm. There is no charge for admission to the show.
The Rolling Stones Gem and Mineral Show is a Labor Day Weekend tradition in Grant County showing high quality gems, minerals and jewelry. Thousands of visitors who leave their hot humid lowlands to travel to our cool clean mountain environment this year will enjoy the great diversity of material presented by our vendors.

More Vendors this year than ever before from all around the Southwestern United States, Mexico and more remote areas bring their museum quality mineral specimens, jewelry, and arts crafted from rock and gems. Quantities of "rough" stones are available for your own cutting and polishing work. Equipment and supplies for these endeavors are available.
 
The Rolling Stones conduct a silent auction ending every 30 minutes throughout the show, with many fine mineral specimens, fossils, petrified wood, and cut slabs in each round of the auction. If you want it, place your bid high enough to discourage other bidders!

Children of all ages are thrilled by the "chance" to win a beautiful polished stone at the Wheel of Fortune,which guarantees a winner for each spin of the wheel.

Many local vendors offer Grant County's justly renowned minerals and stones and items of jewelry they have crafted from them.
 
The Grant County Business and Conference Center may be reached easily. As you come into town watch for the signs directing you to the show. There is plenty of convenient,free parking on a paved lot with easy access to the show.
 
Admission to the show is free.
 
Food service are provided by the Silver City Lions Club. You can take a break and have lunch without leaving the show.
