Some folks believe that certain gems, crystals and minerals have properties that allow them to heal people, invoke calmness, or otherwise contribute to wellness. I don't know about that, but I know that they are beautiful, I love them, I have a lot of them and also I would like some more please.

The Lubbock Gem & Mineral Show is an excellent opportunity to add to your collection. The selection is quite wide, and even includes fossils.

Vendors with Jewelry, Loose Stones, Rough, Cabs, Slabs, Geodes, Beads, Gemstones, Mineral Specimens, Crystals, Fossils, Spheres, and Tools. 60 plus display cases with things that club members have completed or are working on! Hourly Door Prizes, Grand prize drawing for Adults, and another for Kids. The LGMS is a 501c(3) educational organization.

The event will be held at the Lubbock Civic Center (1501 Mac Davis) on June 1st & 2nd beginning at 10 a.m.

Tickets are really inexpensive and available at the door. Adults are $4 (or $7 for a two-day pass), seniors are $3, kids 6-12 are $2, and kids under 6 are free.
