A Yearly Exhibition of Gems
MAGMA Mid-Atlantic Gem & Mineral Association
Gem, Jewelry, Bead, Mineral, Fossil, Arts & Crafts Show
Gem Miner's Jubilee, Holiday and Spring Shows are yearly exhibitions and sales of some of the finest products & collectibles available to the fans of Earth's treasures. We exhibit a larger show in August; a Holiday Gift Show in November; and a Spring Show in June. Each year 100+ vendors from around the country and world converge on Lebanon, Pennsylvania and Howard County MD for a festival of gems, minerals, fossils, beads, jewelry, arts and crafts. This is an opportunity to meet source dealers; those in the trenches, scouring the Earth to bring you the finest in natural treasures.

Our dealer pool is extensive. We have dealers from almost every state in the U.S. as well as abroad. Many are source dealers, i.e. they are the miners, producers or manufacturers. These folks work long, difficult hours to share their passion. We are certain that this attention to detail shows.
