We attended the East Coast Gem, Mineral & Fossil Show in West Springfield Massachusetts this weekend and shopped until we dropped! Each year in August, Martin Zinn puts together the show with 200 or more dealers from all over the United States and abroad that focus on offering a vast selection of items related to the earth sciences. Christine met with a slew of vendors and made several very unique purchases for the Mineral of the Month Club members.

Got the ticket to get in…..




9:30 eagerly awaiting to get into the show. The doors open at 10:00.

Benitoite and Neptunite on display from the Benitoite Gem Mine. Christine was able to purchase som

Benitoite and Neptunite from John Veetaert at Trinity Minerals for one of the Mineral of the Month Club offerings. Woo hoo!




Mineral of the Month Club representation at the show


Bob Martinchek from Nature’s Choice had minerals from Mineral of the Month Club for sale at his booth. And very generously displayed our brochures along with forms to join while at the show.


There will be more photos to follow of the California Collectors and Collections Display later this week.


Until then…Rock on!
