The Denver Gem and Mineral Show has a broad focus of gems, minerals, fossils and geology. Most are familiar with gems and fossils.
For minerals, think of smoky quartz crystals or pyrite. Colorado's state mineral is Rhodochrosite. A beautiful red Rhodochrosite, name the Alma King, resides at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science.
The show features displays of gems, minerals and fossils from major worldwide museums.
Activities include gold panning, rock polishing, jewelry-making, science experiments, and mineral identification. There is lots of free education stuff at the show. Minerals and fossils are available for purchase in all price ranges.
