Gem Faire rocks in Tulsa every May

The Gem Faire is an annual event in Tulsa at Expo Square. The fair travels from state to state and offers an opportunity for shopping and education to jewelers, craftsmen, mineral collectors, and the public. This year, the Gem Faire occurred May 20-22.

At the show, representatives of three Oklahoma-based organizations promoted interests in rocks and jewelry making. The organizations were the Tulsa Rock and Mineral Society, the D.W. Correll Museum from Catoosa, Okla., and the Oklahoma Bead Society.

The Gem Faire conducts nearly 50 shows a year, and one of them is every May in Tulsa. A banner greets visitors by the entrance to the show at Expo Square. Photo by Tatyana Nyborg.
