The Springfield Show, officially called the East Coast Gem, Mineral & Fossil Show, is held every year in the summer in a large hall in the Better Living Center at the Eastern States Exposition in West Springfield, Massachusetts. This year the show was held on August 8 through 10. This is a great show, with many important dealers present, and some new material that I never saw before. This show also has public exhibits, with top-notch collectors displaying their material to all the show-goers.
This year's special exhibit featured California collectors and collections. It featured some of the top minerals from nine prominent California collectors, and was coordinated by John Veevaert of Trinity Minerals.
The Springfield Show news posts will be divided into several sections:
