Helena Mineral Society holds Gem and Mineral Show

Posted: Apr 15, 2018 6:30 PM Updated:

The Helena Mineral Society held its 73rd annual Gem and Mineral show on Sunday, which featured jewelry-faceted stones, rocks, and fossils.

There were over 22 vendors that had everything from gold to silver to calcite to quartz.

With Montana being the Treasure State, the Helena Mineral Society's Show Chairman Gary Parisi said it's no wonder so many people enjoy coming to the show each year.

"We are lucky to live in Montana because there are so many diversified places you can collect," he said. "This is my nineteenth year running the show."

The Bozeman Gem and Mineral Show is set for May 12-13 at the Gallatin County Fairgrounds while the Hamilton Gem and Mineral Show is scheduled for May 19-20 at the Ravalli County Fairgrounds.

There is also a Butte Gem and Mineral Show on June 9-10 at the Civic Center Annex.
