We also offer jewelry making demonstrations, gem, mineral dealers, tools, and books sales. This event helps several community programs in Culver City and helps to educate and inspire elementary students in Earth Science activities.
Fiesta of Gems Show offers over 35 gem and mineral dealers from California, New Mexico, and Arizona who will sell minerals, gems, slabs, cabochons, beads, and jewelry findings. The Culver City Rock and Mineral Club members will exhibit gem and mineral works of art, jewelry pieces, and private collections of gems and minerals. There will be workshops throughout the weekend introducing various techniques of jewelry making.
According to geologyin.com the word druse (Also Known as Drusy or Druzy), refers to an aggregate mass of small crystals (“crystal druse”). These crystal intergrowths or clusters can be formed by many different minerals. The mineral species and shapes of crystals formed are dependent on fluid composition. Crystal size is a function of fluid temperature and pressure.
