The Rough and Tumbled Rock and Gem Club is hosting a free rock and gem show from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 14, at Connect Church gym at 1101 West Grand Avenue.

The show will feature glow-in-the-dark minerals, fossils, rocks and sparkling crystals.

There will be activities for kids and door prizes. Kids’ activities will include a fossil tracing, a touching table, a fluorescent room (glow in the dark rocks), scavenger hunt and a sandpit fossil dig.

For a small cost, kids and adults may make a tiger eye necklace, spin-the-wheel for a prize or cut a geode in half.

Fossils, minerals, crystals and amazing rocks will be available for purchase from regional dealers and collectors.
