  2. I am a school teacher and would like to bring my students to this event. I am particularly interested in having them attend the mineral ID class. How to I sign them up for that?

    • Ann, I would be glad to schedule your class for a mineral identification session. We can fit up to 15 participants and have time slots available on Friday from noon throughout the afternoon. The 10 am and 11 am slots are already booked with large groups of home schoolers. I hope noon or later will work for you. Please call me at 770-952-3244 if that is more convenient to discuss. Sorry for the delay in answering, we didn’t realize there were comments out there for our posting.

      • I would like to register my husband and I for the mineral identification class on Friday……at 1 p.m. if you have openings. And I have a question. If I bring some rocks and minerals I have recently found can someone there talk to me about them?

  3. We can book your class at noon or later on Friday. We have the morning already filled with home school children. I hope that will work out for you, please let me know.

  4. Is this mineral show a good place to purchase wholesale specimens for my rock shop? Or is it just a retail priced show? Thanks
