Turlock Rock & Gem Show opens March 12

TURLOCK - The Turlock Rock & Gem Show will be held on March 12 - 13 at the Stanislaus Fairgrounds in Turlock. Non-profit group, the Mother Lode Mineral Society, is hosting the event.

The group support the community by providing scholarships for Eart Science students, supporting college classes with equipment and instruction, and doing classroom presentations for K-12 students about the rock cycle, minerals and fossils. Proceeds from the show will help pay for these community efforts.

The show will feature impressive dinosaur fossil exhibits and speakers including Bob Jones, senior editor for national magazine "Rock & Gem." Demonstrators will be on hand to show guests how to make beautiful jewelry out of natural rocks and gemstones. Fluoresecent minerals will also be on display, shown under UV lights.
