It’s that time of the year! Nevada County Gem and Mineral Society will hold its annual show, Earth’s Treasures October 8 and 9 at the Nevada County Fairgrounds. Show hours are Saturday and Sunday 10am – 5pm. Parking is free. Admission is $2 for adults, but free for children 12 and under, students with an ID card, as well as teachers!
The major display this year will be announced later this year.
Also displayed will be mineral and fossil collections to educate people about the natural world. In addition, vendors will be selling gems, minerals, fossils, lapidary supplies, books, beads and supplies, exceptional jewelry, and gold prospecting equipment. Club members will demonstrate gemstone carving, wire-wrapping, gold panning and more. A Kids’ Corner handled by our Junior members will feature games, grab bags and contests with prizes created by these young collectors. A revolving silent auction happens all weekend, as well as half-hourly raffle drawings for prizes donated by vendor and club members from their private collections. A prize ticket holder has to be present for the raffle drawing to choose his/her prize. Late Sunday afternoon there is a separate drawing for numerous prizes, including the Grand Prize, a very special gem item of high value. The prize ticket holder does not have to be present to claim these prizes.
