NY-NJ Show Reports
We have put together detailed reports of the NY/NJ Gem & Mineral Show that took place last month in Edison, New Jersey. This show is the largest show east of the Mississippi, and is held annually in the New Jersey Convention and Expo Center. This year saw a strong increase in both mineral dealers and attendance, with several new minerals shown, as well as some new freelance collectors exhibiting. In addition, this year's show featured various collectors putting together an exemplary selection of local New Jersey minerals, some of the best ever organized together in a single show!

All sources are documented, and details of the mineral occurrence and habits of each location are documented.
