Gem shows in Western NC


#1

Judy… Wish I could help you more, but I only recently
moved here and only made one show. It was in Hendersonville and
sponsored by the local gem/min society. It was quite small (to
my way of thinking) I was mostly looking for free form cabs,
but didn’t find any. As I recall there were several nice booths
with faceted stones. The folks in the society were real friendly
and anxious to help.They put me in touch with a neat man who
helped me to identify a stone I had as Chrysoprase (I was hoping
it was jade) Anyway, the lectures etc. looked real interesting
although my kids (who were with me) forbid me to attend. :slight_smile:
I’ll be happy to try and find out some show dates for you if you
like. Just let me know. Also, there’s a little town called
Franklin, famous for its gem mining. Some of them are salted but
others aren’t. If that holds any interest for you try this site
http://franklin.chamber.com/ Let me know if you head this way and
we could get together. This is really beautiful country. Mollie
