For the last 60 years, Spruce Pine has welcomed rockhounds and gem and mineral enthusiasts to the gorgeous Blue Ridge Mountains to shop for beautiful jewelry, gemstones, minerals, beads, crystals, fossils and more! The festival features gem, jewelry and mineral dealers from across the country showcasing their merchandise to fit every budget. Whether you are shopping for an engagement ring, a special stone for your own setting, a custom designed piece of jewelry or a special crystal display for your home, you cannot miss the North Carolina Mineral and Gem Festival. This year features a VIP Night on July 31 that includes a special exhibit from the Museum of North Carolina Natural Sciences and mine tours that are only offered once a year.
