Our goal at Volunteer Gems is to bring you reasonably priced mineral, fossil, and meteorite specimens, as well as related gift items, from around the world.  We try to participate in as many gem and mineral shows as our schedule permits, primarily in the eastern half of the US with focus on the southeast.  We will have many, many more items available at a show than our website limitations permit.  If you don't find what you're looking for on our site, send us an e-mail listing your needs.  We might just have what you're looking for!

At shows, we will have a variety of new specimens that should be of interest to almost any collector.  We're sure there will be something that you will want to add to your collection!  There are specimens to fit any budget and new specimens are being added constantly to our inventory.  As always, we're easy to find with our ORANGE tablecloths!  Look for the ORANGE tablecloths!  You can't miss them!  Just in case, here is a photo from a previous Knoxville show.  We hope to see you at a show soon!  Be sure to stop by and say "Hi!"!
