Gem and Mineral Show Promotes Sciences

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Fossils and dinosaur casts could be seen at the Billings Hotel and Convention Center this weekend.

Hundreds attended the Billings Gem and Mineral Society's annual fundraiser, which allows the organization to promote earth science. The club has programs for both adults and children. The junior program allows children to experience earth science through field trips and hands-on learning.

"We have so much beauty," said Doug True, the show chairman. "Every type of crystal is grown from the earth and it really helps them see what earth is all about, what's on earth, and what we use it for. Everything is made out of something."

The show featured vendors from six states and Montana with fossils, gems, minerals, and jewelry. The show chairman also hopes those who come to the show learn and develop an interest for earth science.
