Minerals & Gemstone 480x104

The Franklin, NJ Fall 2014 Show

This past weekend I had the opportunity to visit the Franklin, New Jersey, Fall show. The weather was extremely hot for late September, and was in the upper 80's. This made the outdoor part of the show a bit uncomfortable. I was also very surprised at the $7 admission price to the show! I don't remember the cost being this high previously, and I certainly hope the show staff takes into consideration that this will alienate supporters of the show. I took photos of all the display cases and some of the fluorescent cases, and zoomed in on some individual pieces. I did not have my tripod with me as I normally do, so the quality of the pictures is not necessarily the quality I would like these pictures to be.
