Our Spring show, which is held at the Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium the last full weekend in April, has a large variety of vendors from across the country selling finished jewelry, gemstones, lapidary supplies and rough stone, fossils, mineral specimens, stone carvings and many other things of interest to “rockhounds”. In addition, there is a rock identification table, demonstrations of stone carving, cabochon making and other lapidary arts, display cases containing examples of items collected or made by club members, plus lectures on various rockhound topics. And for kids, there is a florescent mineral dark room and a children’s activity room. Admission is $7 for adults.
