Gem and Jewellery Festival

gem and jewellery festival North Brisbane, gem stones

Head along to the annual Gem and Jewellery Festival hosted by the North Brisbane Lapidary Club.  Within the hall are exhibitors selling rough gemstones, faceted stones, cabochons of gemstones and opal, jewellery, fossils, mineral specimens, lapidary tools and equipment and much more.

There are also demonstrations, of faceting, by members of the Australian Faceting Guild.

Visitors to the gem show can view one of the widest variety of coloured gemstones on display at any one time. Dealers will be happy to make recommendations on the best type of gemstone for various jewellery items. Other dealers will sell jewellery items or visitors can discuss their personal needs with manufacturing jewellers in attendance. Gemstones on sale include sapphires in all of the range of colours, rubies, emeralds, tanzanite, beryl, chrysoprase and opal.

Rockhounds and mineral collectors will be catered for by several high quality mineral dealers who specialise in both Australian and imported mineral specimens.

Crystals for those within an interest in the metaphysical will be on sale. An excellent variety of fossils; ideal for anyone starting out or advanced collectors; will be available for purchase.

For lapidary hobbyists (gem and rock cutters) there will be dealers selling tools, consumables and machinery to help you turn rocks into gems.

For children there will be fossicking where a bucket of gem wash is purchased, washed, sieved and sorted. Likely finds will be garnets, zircons or quartz crystals.
