Rock & Mineral Show in Moab

Moab's unique geological formations, ranging from arches to petrified dunes, provide a dramatic backdrop that inspires awe and a deeper appreciation for the natural processes that shape our world. This landscape, formed over millions of years, tells a story of time that enhances the experience of exploring and understanding the mineralogical wonders on display at the show. The location underscores the intrinsic connection between the displayed items and the earth from which they came.

The Moab Rock and Mineral Show prides itself on its diversity, offering something for everyone from serious collectors to families looking for an educational adventure. Vendors from across the country and around the world bring a spectacular variety of gems, minerals, fossils, and handmade jewelry. These pieces range from the beautifully raw and natural to expertly polished and crafted items that would grace any home or collection.

One of the show's objectives is education. With experts on hand to explain the origins, formations, and properties of various minerals and gems, visitors have a unique opportunity to deepen their understanding of geology and paleontology. The show frequently features workshops and lectures that cater to both beginners and seasoned collectors, making it a rich learning environment for all ages.

Beyond the confines of the show, Moab offers adventures that can turn a visit into an unforgettable experience. The town serves as a gateway to exploring the stunning national parks nearby—Arches and Canyonlands—where the natural history lessons learned at the show can be seen and felt on a grand scale.

Networking opportunities abound for collectors, families, mine owners, jewelry artists, lapidary specialists, and vendors alike, but perhaps more importantly, it fosters a sense of community among attendees who share a common passion for the Earth's natural wonders. The show strives to become a yearly highlight for the town of Moab, drawing visitors not just for the show itself but for the warm, welcoming atmosphere that surrounds it.
