Gems, Minerals and Fossils to rock out in Peterborough
It’s a show-and-tell of historic proportions…. and a show-and-sale as well. The Kawartha Rock & Fossil Club presents the Peteborough Gem, Mineral & Fossil Show this weekend. To quote Mark Stanley, show chairman, “it’s fine in the earth for milllions of years, then we start digging it up and make it difficult.” Rarity, condition and size are the key elements in valuing these treasures. We take a closer look at Ontario’s official mineral and the crystals where your drywall begins. All carved from the earth and shown as found.
