Every year the Society hosts a Mineral and Gem show at the Newark Pavilion in Newark, California. Over 40 quality jewelry, mineral, gem, bead and fossil dealers display their items over the three day show (Friday - Sunday). It is considered by many to be the best Society show in Northern California - if not the entire west (Tucson excluded). Club members, sister club members and dealers fill the Pavilion's Halls with many great educational exhibits. For the eighth year running, we will have the largest display of fluorescent minerals in California thanks to the Fluorescent Mineral Society. The large display of these rocks is much better in person, but you can click here to view some fluorescent rocks and minerals.

This year's show is March 3, 4 & 5, 2017

During the entire show we will have:
