Gem Show

Discover the timeless wonders of dazzling jewelry at the Gem Show in Hayward, with the largest exhibit of gemstones, minerals, crystals, and earth science demonstrations.

The show features a large collection of fluorescent rocks, an Ice Age cave bears fossils, and a six-foot prehistoric "fish lizard" fossil marks a time 140 to 200 million years ago, when reptiles swam the seas and feasted on fish, squid and other marine organisms. "Rock hounds: The Movie," a 55-minute documentary about gem, mineral and fossil collecting, will entertain audiences with free screenings throughout the weekend. Several educational demonstrations are scheduled, including metalsmithing, polishing, faceting, carving, enameling and jewelry making.
