Discover 100+ stalls trading in gemstones, fine jewellery, facet rough, lapidary tools & supplies, crystals, beads, fossils, mineral specimens, arts, crafts and more.
You can also expect gem cutting and beading displays, advice from gemmologists and plenty of great food and entertainment throughout the weekend.
Stalls are open for everyone to explore on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and whether you are after a two-dollar souvenir, a gemstone of world-class quality, or a unique piece of jewellery, you’ll find it at Minerama!
