Australian
Gem & Mineral Calendar

CROCOITE - Dundas, Tasmania
(photography F. Coffa)

Crocoite, Dundas, Tasmania

This page is always a work in progress, as I sometimes have difficulty in finding out many of the dates. I have also found a number of date errors on other club and association websites (where the weekend dates don't correspond or plain wrong) So at this stage until I gather more information, this is the best that I can do. A large number of these shows are organised by lapidary and craft clubs. Many mineral dealers and tailgaters attend, and they are often a good source of minerals for swapping and purchase. (If readers would like their club or group dates to be included on this page, then please email the web master with details. I just don't have the time to actively chase up dates, so if you don't tell me, then I can't publish them!)
