Local News

A shiny event returns to Erie for another year.  The Gem City Rock and Mineral Society hosts the 49th Annual Gem and Mineral Show.

Visitors got hands-on experience identifying fossils and learning about the healing benefits of the stones.

Vendors from across the tri-state area sold jewelry, crystals and even fossils.  Jim Trimble, President of Gem City Rock and Mineral Society, says, “It promotes geology and learning for kids. We have a lot of kids activities here and it’s just an all around interesting past time.” 

The owner of Quantum Balance Erie spoke at the event.  She shared the benefits to using stones in every day life.
