2013 New York City Gem, Mineral and Fossil Show in midtown Manhattan

The 2013 New York City Gem, Mineral and Fossil Show in Midtown.

The 2013 New York City Gem, Mineral and Fossil Show in Midtown.

Fall of 2013 hours are 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM on Saturday November 9th, 2013, and Sunday 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM Sunday November 10th, 2013. admission $6.

The New York Gem and Mineral show is (to my knowledge) the only mineral show in downtown New York City. Tony at Excalibur Minerals runs the show, (http://www.excaliburmineral.com/shows.htm) with the support of the New York Mineral society and goes to significant effort to keep costs down for the dealers, as well as for the attendees ($6 entrance fee is cheap for any show, let alone NYC). It’s in the ballroom of the Holiday Inn on 440 west 57th st. midtown Manhattan. It’s not widely advertised, and many people in the area don’t know about it. It is a worthwhile show, and makes for a fun outing to see some hard-to-find minerals in a city that has everything (else).

There are about 20 – 25 mineral and jewelry dealers, featuring several well known mineral dealers.  We exhibit our minerals on 8 tables, including three custom made mineral showcases. I’m really looking forward to this show, we are loaded with lots of showcase-level minerals, and I’ll have my wife Wendy there with me for the first time. I always enjoy New York, it’s a great city with lots of friendly, interesting people (okay I’m probably biased by the friendly club members, and enthusiastic patrons).
