2012 Show Info
The acclaimed Tucson Gem and Mineral Show™ is held every year on the second full weekend of February. It has set the standard for gem and mineral shows around the world, and is now the largest gem and mineral show in the United States. The Show is open to the public and presents retail Dealers only. Proceeds from the Show remain in the Tucson economy and are used to support mineral knowledge and appreciation.
The Tucson Gem and Mineral Society, Inc. and Tucson Gem and Mineral Show Committee remains dedicated to presenting extraordinary mineral, gem, fossil, lapidary and jewelry exhibits. These exhibits provide a rare window into private and museum collections from around the world.
Saturday Night Program
The Saturday Night Dinner Program on February 11, 2012 will include a silent auction, buffet, awards ceremony, slide competition awards and a live auction.
Lectures & Seminars
Lectures and seminars are held Thursday through Sunday of the Show week in the Crystal Ballroom and Turquoise Ballroom at the Tucson Convention Center. They are open to the public and free of charge.
There are an estimated 250 retail dealers sharing the Exhibition Hall and the Arena areas of the Tucson Convention Center. An unparalleled variety of mineral, fossil, jewelry, lapidary crafts and related publications are presented under one roof.
School Visits
The Society and the Show Committee invite approximately 3,000 Arizona elementary school students from grades 3-5 to attend the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show™ free of charge with their teachers and chaperones. This affords the children a special opportunity to view the exhibits and shop with the Dealers on Friday morning of Show week. We are not accepting any more submissions at this time.

Junior Education
A cooperative effort between the Tucson Gem and Mineral Society and the Society of Earth Science Students from the University of Arizona provides a truly fun and educational experience for any child who loves the earth sciences. In the Junior Education area at our Show children go through a maze of educational experiments in an exciting interaction with the university students. They will go on a mineral “treasure hunt,” and bring home with them a variety of clearly identified specimens that will remind them for many years of this real and unique journey into the realm of science and education.
