The Palomar Gem and Mineral Club honors San Diego County mining history with its annual Gem, Mineral, and Jewelry Show at the prestigious California Center for the Arts Escondido convention center, located in the heart of old town Escondido surrounded by lovely dining options and adjacent to Grape Day Park for relaxing breaks.

Beautiful mineral specimens, cut gems, gem rough, fossils, and eye-catching jewelry made from gems and minerals may be purchased. Demonstrators will be showing their skills to attendees and giving them the opportunity to learn about some of the lapidary arts promoted through our club including faceting, silversmithing, and other arts.  There will also be Gem Identification; find out what gem is in the ring your grandmother gave you.

The Convention Center is 9000 Square feet of space in a climate controlled, secure building. It is carpeted throughout and has large bathroom spaces for both men and women. There is a very large exterior hallway and a very large exterior courtyard.
