Hello Folks.

Along with my siblings Christine and Russell, I'd like to introduce the 2012 New York City Metropolitan Area Gem Show, or "NYC Metro Show" for short. Our exhibitors will feature minerals, fossils, dinosaurs, crystals, gems, jewelry, and meteorites in the modern Meadowlands Exposition Center. It is located in New Jersey just across the Hudson River from New York City via the Lincoln Tunnel. Thursday evening (May 10) is "wholesale only" but Friday, Saturday, and Sunday are open to the public. Covered parking is free. Space for 200 dealers.

The inaugural NYC Metro Show will feature the New York debut of the life-size "American Woman" sculpture by Francisco Sotomayor. This masterpiece (featured in Feb 2010 Rock & Gem magazine) was carved from a single 21-ton block of marble. She has been to 26 western US cities, but never before east of the Mississippi.

In addition, our 'Fine Mineral & Gem Gallery' for high-end mineral and gem dealers is a "show within a show" featuring plush seating, glistening showcases, wine bar, and a dedicated 24-hour police guard.

Fifteen million people live within one hour and will be reached via front-page display ads in the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, and the Star-Ledger -- and twelve premium billboards on New Jersey's busiest highways. This will be a tremendous show that will have a very high attendance, yet booth space is very attractively priced.

Leading exhibitors such as Arkenstone, Astro Gallery, Mike Bergmann Minerals, Edwards Minerals, Eons Ago Company, Green Mountain Minerals, Hummingbird Minerals, Indiana9 Fossils, Intimate Gems, Nord Fossil, and Rocksaholics are already signed up. Come join us!
