2017 Kalamazoo Rock, Gem and Mineral Show

Mark your calendars now for the 2017 Kalamazoo Rock, Gem, Fossil, Jewelry and Mineral Show: May 5-7, 2017

2017 Show:
We are reaching out to some major institutions to bring you some exceptional specimens for the Show. Tentatively, we have Michigan’s own, internationally known, Seamen Museum on board.

Planning for the 2017 KGMS show continues. Paleo Joe and others will be doing presentations on Friday Saturday and Sunday. Our “Gem” of a grand prize is actually an amazing Crinoid Plate that has rare fossilized crinoid heads along with the more common segmented crinoid stems.

GemStones A – Z

Definition: None that are universally accepted.

It seems the only agreed upon definition of “gemstone” is that it’s a noun!

Gemstones are a mystery unto themselves, each meaning something precious to the beholder. And one man’s gem is just a part of another man’s cement sidewalk.

Gemstones encompass the most varied of geological treasures, from those iconic strikingly cut and polished diamonds of fairy tales to stones of common geological origin, mineraloids and even objects from space!

Breakaway from the stereotypes and discover just what types of “gemstones” tickle your fancy!

Gemstones are as unique as we are, and their beauty, desirability, and even strangeness lie far beyond your imaginings!

Unearth the mysteries of your own treasures!
