Nanaimo Gem and Mineral Show was rocking

Event was held Saturday and Sunday, May 25-26, at the Legion Branch 256

The Nanaimo Gem and Mineral Show was really rocking.

The show hosted approximately 20 vendors this past weekend, May 25-26, with 40 tables of crystals, fossils, beads, and other kinds of jewelry and rocks for sale. A door draw was held every hour for prizes specially crafted and provided by the vendors. The main door prize was an enormous amethyst.

The show was held at the Royal Canadian Legion Mt. Benson Branch 256.
