Tri-State Rock Show


A rock show took place in the Tri-States this weekend and we're not talking about rock music.

Gem City Rock Club hosted its bi-annual Mineral, Rock and Fossil Show at the Quincy Mall.

The show features exhibits and dealers with minerals, geodes, fossils and more along with multiple activities for children.

Members were able to identify rocks, minerals and fossils brought to the show.

"The beauty of some of the crystals--it's amazing. The colors and crystals that are found underground and with the fossils...the history of early life in this area," said Jane Hilsmeyer of Gem City Rock Club.

Fun fact: the Tri-States have many fossilized trees and that's where our coal comes from.
