Two 'rock' shows in the coming two weeks. March 16 2016

Just spreading the word about the two gem, mineral and  fossil shows about to happen in Tasmania.

The annual Hobart Gem, Mineral & Fossil Show will be held this weekend (19th & 20th March) at the Hobart Showground, Glenorchy - the venue is the Grandstand Hall.

Saturday times: 9 - 5pm       Sunday times: 9 -4pm      


....and over Easter,, 25th - 28th March,  a four day show in Ulverstone. The town will host The 52nd NationalGem & Mineral Show, at the Ulverstone Showgrounds, in Flora Street.. This event will have many interstate traders and visitors, who will display their earthy 'goods', either for sale or as competition displays. This event is held in a different state each year and has a dedicated retinue of show followers, some of whom are here to fossick as well as attend the state's two shows. 


Lunaris Gemstones will be attending both events, with a new selection of Tasmanian topaz from Flinder's Island, as facetted stones; jade jewellery from western Tasmania, and some unusual 'Sunstone' Aquamarine, both rough and facetted. We will have our usual array of Stichtite in Serpentine - from Dundas, Tasmania - as carvings, jewellery and rough pieces, suitable for carving or as a mineral specimen.
