As always, there will be a great variety of displays of gemstones, crystals and minerals from member clubs. Many cases will contain collections of hand-crafted jewellery and silversmithing.
Throughout the show, members will be demonstrating techniques of lapidary, sculpting, faceting, silversmithing, flint knapping, wire wrapping, and enamelling. The gold panning is a very popular demonstration.
Among the many features of this, Canada's largest gem show, will be 40+ dealers carrying supplies for the hobby along with specimens of crystals, minerals, cut stones, cutting material and many gift items.
A very popular area, where youngsters are given a kit of material to make a "Critter" with a tumbled rock.
