The Gem and Mineral Show is a fundraiser for the Bozeman Gem and Mineral Club, a nonprofit organization and oldest “rock club” in Montana. Organized in 1939, the club is meant for anyone interested in rocks, fossils, gemstones, field trips, and learning lapidary and rock cutting skills. It also has its own lapidary shop for cutting, polishing and cabbing rocks.
If you have a curiosity for gems and minerals, the Bozeman Gem & Mineral Club is a great organization to develop wonderful friendships of all ages and interests. Visit www.bozemangemandmineralclub.com to learn more and don’t miss the Gem & Mineral Show, May 13th–14th! •
