Did you know that Glen Innes Highlands is one of the world’s richest mineral diversity belts which means that sapphires are just one of the many types of gems found in the area?
What better place to host a Fossicking, Gem & Jewellery Show.
There are over 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.
If you love adventure and want to try your luck hunting for treasure there are options available at Minerama.
Beginners: There are daily fossicking lessons for beginners, children and families who are interested in learning a few tricks of the trade. Lessons are available for a gold coin donation at the Minerama site. During the lesson you can find gems such as crystals, topaz, grass stone and jelly bean crystals.
Experienced: If you are a keen gem hunter and want to try your luck in some of the Glen Innes Highlands best kept secret sites then you won’t want to miss out on a guided field trip. Bookings are required and can be made through the Minerama website in the lead up to the event.
