Apache Junction Rock & Gem Club is hosting their semi-annual Rock & Mineral Show at a new location in March. They are bringing the rock show to Mesa Community College located at 1401 S Dobson Rd, Mesa, AZ. This dog-friendly event will be held in the parking lot under the solar panel shade structures. Over 70 vendors from Arizona and nearby states, will be selling precious gems, minerals, rocks, slabs, and jewelry. The show is outdoors, Saturday 9AM-5PM and Sunday 9AM-4PM, March 4-5, 2023. Cost for adults is $3.00, Students with school id is $1.00. Children 12 years and under are free.

Over 70 vendors will be selling beautiful pieces with prices ranging from $1 to several hundred dollars. Other great features of this Rock Show are all the activities for kids to learn and share an interest in rocks. The Apache Junction Rock & Gem Club encourages rock hounding at a young age, and participates in STEM nights at local Junior High Schools. Children enjoy being involved spending time outdoors digging around in the dirt on the hunt for sparkly rocks and rocks of deep hues like red Jaspers, green Malachite, Turquoise, blue Azurite, Chrysocolla, and Payson Diamonds. When kids go rock hounding, it can be a great outing for the whole family. Plus many places to rock hound do not have cell phone reception which brings the imagination back within the person. Connecting with nature is a wonderful thing for everyone’s physical and mental health.

The Apache Junction Rock & Gem Club is a 501c3 non-profit organization and provides scholarships to students whose main interests are Earth Sciences and Geology. This year, there will be a Scholarship Program for undergrad students at MCC to apply. The Scholarship Committee at the AJ Rock Club is facilitated by Vicki Bretey.
