The 65th annual gem and mineral show was held today at the two rivers convention center.
Dealers showed precious gems, jewelry and minerals to the public.
The Convention Center was filled with members of the Gem and Mineral Club who were volunteering to help out.
Every year a silent auction takes place and all proceeds go towards scholarships for Colorado Mesa University's geology program.
The show also acts as a fundraiser for the gem and mineral clubs activities and field trips.
Gem and Mineral Club member, Tim Austin says,”There's a lot of good hunting areas around
Grand Junction, we go out in the Book Cliffs, we go out to Glade Park and to Gunnison River”
