County Fair Display
Member explaining rock and mineral specimens in Grab Bags The El Dorado Mineral and Gem Society's participation in the annual county fair includes displaying minerals, lapidary, jewelry work, and educational exhibits. We coordinate the exhibit setup and provide hosts and hostesses for the Mining & Minerals Displays in the Organ Room Building.
Many quality minerals on display Our society hosts over 30 case displays including worldwide minerals, lapidary, jewelry, self-collected specimens, fossils and artifacts. We also exhibit photos and samples of rocks and minerals collected on our many field trips. Mining maps, photos, mineral posters and other educational material are all part of the display.
Visiting us at the Fair is a great opportunity to learn about our society and meet its members. We are happy to explain more about the hobby and activities that you can attend.  Both children and adults enjoy getting our grab bags from year to year.  Donations from the grab bags go toward our Education and Scholarship Programs.  Taking Picture of Award Winning Case
