NPGS Niagara Peninsula Geological Society

Gem, Mineral, and Fossil Show and Sale 2016

- a GEO VENTURE! - and our 50th Anniversary Show


The rocks and minerals of our earth are the bones of our planet - and we’ve all imagined what it would be like to be a rock or meteorite hunter, a fossil hunter, a miner finding a perfect diamond, or a jeweller.


We are contagious!

We’ll fill you with the desire to go rockhounding!

We’ll fill you with the desire to make jewellery.

We’ll fill you with the desire to know “What is this rock?” “How old is it?” “Why is it here?”


We’ll answer your questions.

We’ll show you our tools and equipment. We’ll invite you to our meetings and field trips.

We’ll be there with member displays - fossils, gems, rocks, crystals, and minerals.

We’ll have our microscope so you can look at “rocks” in an entirely different way.

We’ll have our 3 Touch Tables at the show - you can pick all of the rocks in them up!

We’ll let you look at our fluorescent minerals. We’ll have wire-wrapping demos.


Not only that, we’ll have gem, mineral, fossil, and jewellery vendors there - who have some of the most amazing crystals, rocks, minerals, and fossils from all over the world (including a load of unusual ones) - as well as who lots of award-winning + one-of-a-kind + artisan jewellery  + beads & finding (you make your own jewellery) - and whole bunch of different rock art.

You can shop ‘til you drop!
