spring gem show - Laidley lutheran church hall
7 MacGregor Street, Laidley
Gatton Lapidary Club hosts the Spring Gem Show. Its members cut and polish a great variety of semi-precious stones and have a wealth of information about the rocks, gems and fossils found in the Lockyer Valley. The Gem Show is an amazing display of their work which includes cabochons and tumbled stones set in jewellery as well as polished agates, thundereggs and rocks showing a range of colours and intricate patterns. Select from the range of jewellery and gifts to take home with you. The kids will enjoy the Gem Show, looking through the rocks and taking home some little treasures.
If you are interested in the geology of the Lockyer Valley, on display will be a variety of posters, specimens, a 3D model and a booklet showing what rocks are found in the valley and a brief outline of their geological history. All rocks contain a fascinating story of their origin hidden within them.
