Gem Show Classes

Ready to get hands-on? Folks who are curious about metalsmithing and lapidary can learn new skills through classes at the Four Corners Gem and Mineral Show. Classes are designed for those ages 14 through adult. All materials are included and participants can bring home their creations. Students can create silver bracelets, layered rings, a Cabochon and more.

This show, by far, is my favorite gem and mineral show in the southwest. I love the all the dealers and the amazing classes.

Food Trucks

Bring an appetite to the Four Corners Gem and Mineral Show. The show will also feature an array of local vendors serving up a taste of the Southwest. On-site food trucks will serve up all kinds of delicious food and beverages, bringing local flavor to savor.


The Annual Show is a fundraiser for the non-profit Four Corners Gem and Mineral Club, a nonprofit organization established in 1947 that is dedicated to the earth sciences, local geology and mining history. Not only does the club put on a great show, but they also fund a scholarship for one lucky geology student at Fort Lewis College. Participate in the silent auction at the show to help!
