Since 1966, the Nova Scotia Gem and Mineral Show has been held in the Town of Parrsboro, Nova Scotia, Canada.  A showcase for geological treasures, and with over 30 high quality exhibitors of spectacular gems, minerals, jewelry and metalwork, the Nova Scotia Gem and Mineral Show is a very popular family event.

The gem and mineral displays, and specimens for sale, are some of the finest in the Maritimes.  A weekend of workshops, geological events and demonstrations let you experience what it's like to work with gems and minerals, or shape a metalwork design.  Pan for gold and much more!
