Gem and Mineral Show runs through Sunday

March 5, 2011

Joyce Speed believes you haven't met a nice person until you've met a rockhound.

Speed should know. She and her husband, Delbert, log thousands of of miles annually in their RV, traveling to gem shows in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama, and she has been a devoted mineral enthusiast for almost 50 years.

So when she says events such as the 42nd annual Big Spring Prospector's Club Gem and Mineral Show are a treat, she has experience to back up her claim.

“The people are what I like most about the hobby,” she said. “They're just the most generous, and pardon the pun, down-to-earth people you ever want to meet.”
