For ten days ten separate shows feature over 900 vendors and exhibitors, each displaying and selling their gems, minerals, jewelry, and lapidary tools and supplies. For world-class mineral specimens don’t miss the three-year-old Denver Fine Mineral Show at the Denver West Marriott, the longstanding prestigious Colorado Mineral & Fossil Show (CMFS), the Denver Gem & Mineral Show (known as “The Main Show”) at the Denver Mart, or the Denver Coliseum Show (DCS). And you can always find a hidden gem or mineral treasure at the Denver Expo at the National Western Complex, the Jewelry, Gem & Mineral (JG&M) Expo, the Colorado Independent Warehouse Show in Lakewood, or the Miners Co-op in the DCS parking lot. For fossils, Oh my!, between CMFS and DCS, Denver hosts one of the highest concentration of fossil dealers and dinosaurs found anywhere in the world. Jewelry and bead lovers’ shows are the International Gem & Jewelry Show and Bead Renaissance, both at the Mart.
