This Saturday and Sunday (Sept 28-29, 2013), is the largest Rock, Gem, and Mineral Show for the state of Maryland. It is held at the Howard County Fairgrounds – just off of I70 and rt32.
This is a fun day of looking/shopping for Rocks, Slabs, Finished Jewelry (remember the Holidays are just around the corner), and equipment.
I will be manning the Demo area at the back of the building doing some Cabochoning. There will be other Jewelry demos as well.
For kids 8-15, we have our perennial Gem Mine. For 50 cents a pan, miners/minors will hunt through the pan uncovering precious and semi-precious gemstones such as Topaz, Ruby, Sapphire, Aquamarine, Emerald, Peridot, and Garnet – even facetted diamonds. (All of these are small, but they get to keep whatever they find, and we will help identify them).
There is a show flier (with a $1.00 off coupon – age 12 and under are free) at:
If you would like to learn a little bit about Cabbing, stop back and see me. If I have the time, I will let you use the machine and practice cabbing.
I hope to see you there.
