Event Details

A little known history of San Diego County is its mining history. In the gem and mineral world, San Diego is famous for its gem mines that produce tourmaline, garnets, morganite ( a stone named after J.P. Morgan), kunzite (named after George Kunz, mineralogist and buyer for Tiffany and Co.), and other gems. The Palomar Gem and Mineral Club honors that mining history with its 63rd annual Gem, Mineral, and Jewelry Show at the prestigious California Center for the Arts, Escondido 340 N Escondido Blvd, Escondido, CA 92025.
