Gilsum Rock Swap and Mineral Show to be Held June 22-23, 2019

Gilsum, NH — The town of Gilsum, located in the scenic Monadnock Region in southwestern NH, will once again host thousands of people from all over the U.S. who will attend the Gilsum Rock Swap and Mineral Show. Here more than 65 dealers, swappers, distributors, wholesalers, and collectors can buy, sell, or swap beryl, quartz crystals, semi-precious stones, and rocks and minerals of all sorts. Displays range from newly found specimens in the rough to fossils, prized collector’s pieces and hand-crafted jewelry.

The event takes place at the Gilsum Elementary School grounds, Route 10 in Gilsum, just north of Keene, NH, and is about 2 hours from Boston. Show hours are 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM Saturday and 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM Sunday.

Mineral collector and geologist Nancy Swing returns again this year with an all-new presentation on Herkimer diamonds, how they form and where to find them in the Northeast. Join Nancy Saturday at 1:00 pm in the Gilsum Elementary School auditorium – and get a free specimen!

Gilsum’s many mines operated until the 1940s and yielded feldspar, mica, and beryl. Most are now abandoned, although one, the Beauregard mine, is available to mineral clubs through prior arrangement. Today collectors prize other minerals such as beryl. Maps showing locations of local mines are available during the show.

Since the show’s inception, the town of Gilsum has opened its doors for the event. Activities include a presentation on prospecting Saturday, daily pancake brunch, bake sale, book sale, a traditional Saturday night New England ham and bean supper with homemade pies and a chicken barbeque dinner Sunday afternoon.

Admission is free, although donations are graciously accepted. All proceeds go to youth recreation and community programs.

Goals and Purposes

The goals and purposes of the Association of Earth Science Clubs of Greater Kansas City are educational and scientific in nature.

They are: to promote interest in geology and lapidary arts; to encourage the collecting and display of rocks, gems and minerals; to encourage field trips of a geological, mineralogical or lapidary nature; and to encourage greater public interest and education in gems and minerals.

The clubs of the Association make donations to the Midwest Federation, the American Federation of Mineralogical Societies, and the Scholarship Fund. The Association has established its own scholarship fund and presents scholarships each semester to several college students. Our aim is to help deserving students further their education in the earth sciences.

Various clubs members are available to present programs and lectures with slides to the public. Schools, youth groups are given special invitations and area teachers are given rocks and mineral specimen collections to teach and enjoy at their schools.

The Association of Earth Science Clubs of Greater Kansas City members would like to thank you for attending our show. You have contributed to the achievement of our goals.

Our Show

Our mineral show is held at the KCI Expo Center, 11730 NW Ambassador Dr. Kansas City, MO 64153. Take the 112th St. exit off I-29 and go to Ambassador and turn left. The building is approximately a half mile from the stop light on the left hand side of the road or take the KCI Exit (Cookingham Drive) off I-435.

As always there was a wide variety of retail dealers selling a wonderful assortment of rocks and minerals, fossils, lapidary work, jewelry and gemstones, beads and beading supplies, and supplies…the list is just too long to cover completely!

The wholesale area will be in operation where those with valid tax ID’s in the gem, mineral, beading, and jewelry trades can purchase products and supplies. This area closes one hour before the show ends.

This mineral show is eagerly anticipated by thousands of area residents as one of the premier shows in the mid-west. Visitors will see special displays of rocks and minerals, lapidary work of all kinds, live demonstrations of lapidary, bead making and jewelry fabrication techniques. Static displays include fossils and fossil identification, club-member displays, and a special area for children.

We also have a large non-retail swap area and special displays for schools. Friday is the day that educators and youth leaders bring their students and youth groups on field trips. Each day there will be lectures and slide presentations that visitors can attend.

Valuable door prizes will be given away,all three day, to lucky show visitors.

Saturday night, after the mineral show closes, a public auction of donated items from our retail and wholesale dealers will be held at 7:00 pm. On Saturday and Sunday afternoon several silent auctions will be held during the show, just behind the information booth. All auction proceeds go to the Association’s Scholarship Fund. Several scholarship recipients benefit from the proceeds of this year’s show auctions.
