Annual RGMS Benefit Auction (October monthly meeting)

OPEN TO THE PUBLIC! Come join us at our October monthly meeting to participate in the fun when the Richmond Gem & Mineral Society has its annual fund-raising auction! This event supports RGMS and its activities throughout the year. Members donate items for auction from minerals to fossils to lapidary pieces to books--you never know what might come up for auction--but bid fast and furious! Kids welcome!

ADMISSION FREE! Come to one of the best Rock Sale & Swaps on the East Coast! Collectors, dealers and club members showing, swapping and selling their mineral specimens, fossils, and lapidary crafts.
