The Zeehan gem and mineral fair
This is Tasmania’s main annual gem and mineral show, held every year in early November. It is a great place to see what new minerals are coming out, and there is always something new there.
It is an annual Community event that will always be on the 1st weekend after the Melbourne Cup, and attracts about 1000 people. There are usually over 30 stalls of Gems, Jewellery, Minerals, Crystals, Opals, Beads, Fossils and more, in the Basketball Stadium at the Zeehan Primary School, (on Belstead St.).
Local small miners and collectors have many crystals and minerals direct from the local mines and prospecting sites around Zeehan, including, Crocoite, (Tasmania’s Mineral Emblem), Stichtite and Serpentine carvings, Pyromorphite, Quartz, Tourmaline and much more! Specimen competitions exhibit some fabulous specimens, especially the Tasmanian competition.
Next fair: 9-10 Nov 2013.
