DESCRIPTION
   THE VENTURA GEM SHOW—The Annual Gem, Mineral, Lapidary & Fossil Show of the Ventura Gem & Mineral Society (VGMS) takes place March 3-4, 2018, at the Ventura County Fairgrounds (10 AM - 5 PM, Saturday; 10 AM - 4 PM, Sunday). Admission is FREE! (Fairgrounds charges $5 for parking) This free show will feature 60+ displays of gems, minerals, fossils, and award-winning handcrafted jewelry. Among these will be educational exhibits of fossils collected locally in and around Ventura County, as well as a display of our State Rock, Mineral, Fossil, and Gemstone. Still other displays will show how stones collected locally have been crafted into jewelry. Demonstrations throughout the show will give visitors up-close looks at lapidary artists pursuing their skills in-person, including gemstone cutting and polishing, silver work and jewelry making, beading, colorful glass bead forging, sphere-making, precious metal clay work, and other arts. Raffle prizes include fine jewelry, a one hundred dollar bill, silver coins, mineral and fossil specimens, and more. Silent auctions for jewelry, minerals, and fossils, as well as a white elephant sale, plant sale, and 16 dealers selling beads, American opals, jade, gemstones, crystals, fossils, jewelry and jewelry-making supplies, and gift items are part of the festivities. It’s a 56-year Ventura tradition the whole family can enjoy! The show is the society’s major fund-raising event helping to underwrite educational activities, including their annual college scholarship. For further details, call VGMS President Diane Cook (805-312-8467), email us at info@vgms.org, or visit our web site at www.vgms.org.
