March 20, 2017 - Mariposa, CA. April 8 & 9, 2017:  The Mariposa Gem and Mineral Show, an annual fund-raiser for the California State Mining and Mineral Museum, is all set to be even bigger and better this year.

There are lots of fun and educational activities for kids.

A wide variety of gemstone jewelry and rough, breathtaking mineral and rock specimens, fossils, crystals, beads and mineral related crafts of all sorts will be available from our many vendors. The Mariposa Gem & Mineral Club will be cutting geodes and doing various mineral and jewelry demonstrations throughout the show. Silent auctions and a huge raffle add to the fun.
