Gem and Mineral Shows in New Mexico: March 2024

March is going to be a truly dazzling month with not one but two gem and mineral shows taking place in New Mexico. Start your gem journey at The Albuquerque Gem & Mineral Club’s 53rd annual show that takes place at Expo NM State Fairgrounds on March 15-17. Peruse the wares of over 50 dealers, thousands of mineral specimens, slabs, cabochons, beads, fossils, petrified wood, plus tools and equipment. On display — and for sale — is everything from amethyst cathedrals to Zebra rocks. And if you don’t know what these are, then even more reason to pay gem and mineral shows in New Mexico a visit.

Save some room because next on the calendar is the Truth or Consequences Rock and Gem Show from March 23-24. Sponsored by the Sierra County Rock & Gem Society, the show is host to a range of vendors selling minerals, fossils, beads, and jewelry. Plus, there are field trips, and you can even pan for gold and Montana sapphires.
