The Tucson Gem and Mineral Show® has enjoyed international stature since the 1970s, and was the first gem and mineral show to bring the hobby enthusiast, the public, and the curator/professionals together for discovery and discussion.
The Tucson Gem and Mineral Show® features two separate annual events that focus on kids. The Society’s hope is to create an impact on curious young minds, and share the delight in the science and beauty of minerals and related earth sciences. The Society and the Show Committee invite approximately 3000 elementary students to attend the Show. They are afforded a special opportunity to view the exhibits and shop with the Dealers. Additionally, over 2,000 children of all ages visit the special Jr. Education area, now in the south end of the Arena, where U of A SESS students share a wealth of mineral and earth sciences information, and answer their questions.
