GEM AND FOSSIL SHOW AT FAIRGROUNDS TO FEATURE TYRANNOSAURUS REX SKULL

A Tyrannosaurus rex skull is one of the highlights of the 30th annual gem, mineral and fossil show of the Buffalo Gemological Society today in the Grange Building at the Erie County Fairgrounds in Hamburg.

The show also features an "instant museum" of minerals, fossils, gems, carvings and lapidary pieces, a "minimine" where children can dig for fossils and mineral specimens, demonstrations of fossil cleaning and preparation, and dealers of mineral specimens and rock-hound supplies.

Canadian Sandy Cline will demonstrate the Eskimo art of carving wildlife from soapstone, and Rick Batt will draw dinosaurs.

Show hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The Grange Building is reached via the South Park Avenue entrance to the fairgrounds.
