TURLOCK - The Mother Lode Mineral Society will host the 45th Annual Gem, Jewelry and Rock show on March 12 and 13, at the Stanislaus County Fairgrounds located at 900 North Broadway in Turlock.

Proceeds from the show will go to providing scholarships for earth science students, supporting college classes with equipment and instruction and doing classroom presentations for K-12 about the rock cycle, minerals and fossils.

The annual show features everything from dinosaur fossil exhibits to an expert editor for the magazine "Rock & Gem." Attendees will have the opportunity to make unique jewelry out of natural rocks and gemstones.
