While SRAC displays alot of artifacts at the show, it seems to be a tradition that many people bring artifacts or unknown objects for Ted to identify for them:
And if you like - you can even facet a gem for yourself!
While there is alot for the kids to do, their favorite seems to be the "Mini Mine" where they pay their fifty cents and the train car loads up a load in the mine...
Then "whoo whoo!" up it comes out of the mine:
And when it reaches the end of the tack - it empties out its "load" of minerals, gems and shells for the kids to take home!
There is also alot for the adults to include a couple thousand square feet of gem and mineral vendors out back!
Sorry you missed out? You don't have to be! The Gem and Mineral Show is open again tomorrow from 10-5pm!
The show is located at the Athens Township Fire Hall, Bressler Street, Athens, PA.
Hope to see you there!
