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 $6 for adults.
Members of the Society sell rocks, minerals, gems, jewelry, fossils, and other gift items at the annual holiday sale. The sale takes place at the Santa Cruz Live Oak Grange, 1900 17th Ave., Santa Cruz, CA 95062. Admission and parking are free. The sale is held the third full weekend in November and doors are open Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm and Sunday from 10 am to 4 pm.
