amazing display of gems, fossils, minerals, beads and gifts was to be
admired at the past Annual Gem Show by the Gem- and Mineral Society of the
Countless visitors marveled and shopped to
their heart's desire.
This big show is really Palm beach's
finest show of the year. Every rockhound can find supplies for their
hobbies, whether it be gem polishing, rock cutting, tumbling, faceting,
collecting or jewelry making.
Each time that show is in town, the Gem-
and Mineral Society of the Palm Beaches works very hard to deliver many well
known gem and mineral dealers. At the same time that club provides a
stunning array of their member's work for all to see.
Being a part of that club means pursuing a
fascinating hobby with numerous aspects. You could be enjoying micro mounts,
or you could dig up fossils on one of the field trips, or you could be
designing your own jewelry. All club members are wonderful and knowledgeable
people who will share their skill in workshops and classes.

As always, special thanks
go to Jeff Ursillo, the club's President, as well as Deb and Carl Bengtson
and Barbara Ringhiser who work hard all year as Show Chair persons to bring
that show to life.
A warm thank you to the
volunteers of the Neverending Necklace Donna Jostiak and Cyndy Manzo who
again helped staff the table at this years show.
