Wintry Wonderland Of Crystals
The bi-annual Windsor Gem and Mineral Fair is on again! This winter it is a two day event held on Saturday18th and Sunday19th June at the Windsor Function Centre, and is proudly supported by the Hawkesbury Valley Lapidary Club.
Kids can take part in a variety of activities or complete a quiz to win a prize, while adults can buy a raffle ticket. There will also be a lucky door prize in the form of a 9ct Gold and sapphire pendant which will be drawn on Sunday afternoon. Demonstrations by the Hawkesbury Valley Lapidary Club will also highlight the intense skill involved in jewellery making. Light refreshments will also be available.
As you wander through the many stalls, you will find exotic handmade jewellery, unique gemstones, strings of beads, luscious opals, raw gems, carvings, ancient fossils, metaphysical and healing crystals, lapidary tools, and rare international mineral specimens.
