Annual Show Page - MAR 7-8, 2015
Welcome to the Clear Lake Gem and Mineral Society Annual Gem Show
The Clear Lake Gem, Mineral and Jewelry Show is held in late February or early March each year at the Pasadena Convention Center, 7902 Fairmont Parkway, Pasadena, Texas, southeast of the Houston Metro area, 2.5 miles east of Beltway 8. The next show will be March 8 and 9, 2014. Admission is $7 for adults (good for both days of the show), $3 for students grades 6-12, and children are Free.
Many of the local newspapers feature dollar off coupons for admission. That coupon is also avaiable here. And remember the ticket (and coupon) are good for both days. Show hours are Sat. 10-6, Sun. 10-5. And - Free parking!
The Show Committee has carefully selected about 30 quality dealers to bring a balanced variety of merchandise to appeal to as many people as possible and at reasonable prices. There will be tools, raw materials, and books for the hobbyist, many mineral and fossil specimens for the collector, and jewelry ranging from fun-to wear to the finest opals, diamonds and emeralds.
The show is specially oriented for the whole family! Special demonstrations of lapidary work are included for the entertainment of all show patrons. Do not assume you know what is at the show for extra activities because it was 'there last year'. Due to the continuing need to upgrade and keep up with community needs, readers should check back at this web page prior to the show for the latest updates. We have people on hand who can do mineral and fossil identification on items you bring in. The CLGMS is proud to provide continuing educational activities for everyone that are fun and a part of learning.
An excellent special program for Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts that allows them to get first hand material that helps with Geology related merit badges is now a continuing part of every show. Trina will be there to instruct you. In addition the CLGMS strives to present a varied amount of activities that are attractive to children.
Demonstrations - Another special club sponsored table provides
demonstrations by the Clear Lake Gem and Mineral Society Club Members on
Cabochon Making, Rock Tumbling, and Faceting.
Also, a local merchant is available to identify your gemstones at the Demonstration table.
