Over 25 dealers from across the country come to sell minerals and fossil specimens, beads, lapidary tools and cutting materials, gems, jewelry and more.

Throughout the Show, demonstrators illustrate the diversity of the lapidary arts including cabochon cutting, flint knapping, wire wrapping, and jewelry making.

Fun activities for the young (or young at heart) will be found at the Children’s Activities booth.

Exhibits and educational opportunities for all ages are provided by various state organizations, colleges, and earth science professionals. MGMS members also display some of their own collections of fossils, minerals, and artifacts (many found here in Mississippi).
