Field Trips


The first field trip for 2023 will be to the annual Quartzsite Pow Wow gem show in Quartzsite AZ. This will be a purchasing trip. Vendors from around the country, and the world, will be selling cutting material, minerals/crystals, lapidary equipment, jewelry and jewelry supplies and much more. This is the first, and some say best, gem show of the year.

The meet up with be at the Burger King parking lot located at 1395 West Main St. Quartzite, AZ. This exit 17 on Interstate 10 and is the first Quartzite Exit. It will be the next exit after exit 11 Dome Rock Road.

Meeting time will be 10:00 AM Arizona time, 9:00 AM California time. Your cell phone should adjust accordingly when you enter Arizona.

Quartzite is a big place with sometimes heavy traffic, so I will need to contact information for all those planning to attend.

My contact info is Scott Gray (951-492-9806.

The Pow Wow location is 235 East Ironwood, Quartzite, AZ.
