More than 60 dealers, swappers, distributors, wholesalers and collectors can buy, sell, or swap beryl, quartz crystals, semi-precious stones, and rocks and minerals of all sorts at this outdoor event. Displays range from newly found specimens in the rough to fossils, prized collector’s pieces and even hand crafted jewelry.

James Tovey shows how gem-quality minerals in the rough from the Tripp Mine are extracted and fabricated into fine jewelry -- a soup to nuts visual presentation -- Saturday at 2:00 PM. Steve Garza shows you the basics of prospecting, including where to look, what to look for and how to extract it, Saturday evening at 7:00 PM.

Other events include our annual ham and bean dinner with all-you-can-eat home made pies, a chicken barbecue, and panning for minerals for the kids.
