Franklin, New Jersey, hosts two mineral shows every year: one in the spring and one in the fall. This show, along with the Clifton N.J. show, is the best show to get local material and meet local dealers. This show also has nice interesting fluorescent minerals to view and buy cases as well as public exhibits put together by local collectors. I was somewhat surprised by the lower attendance this year and the amount of dealers not present compared to previous years. As always, though, I was able to find some nice bargains at this show.
The show took place on April 27-18, 2015. Images of some the public exhibits and minerals from the exhibits can be seen below. (Click the pictures for a larger pop-up.)
