About the CRLC Gem, Mineral & Fossil Show

The Calgary Rock and Lapidary Club has operated Calgary’s premier rock and gem show since 1959.  Operation of this show funds operation of our club and our workshop.  For 30 years the show was located at the West Hillhurst Community Centre and in 2013 made the move to a much larger arena at Vivo for Healthier Generations.  In 2024 we moved to the Genesis Centre.

About the Calgary Rock and Lapidary Club

The Calgary Rock and Lapidary Club was formed on Feb 13, 1959 by a group of rock and lapidary enthusiasts.  Meetings were initially held in private homes.  The CRLC now has a fully equipped workshop located in NE calgary, allowing us to operate classes on rock polishing, jewelry, silversmithing, rock identification and geology.
