Living in Idaho, there are some incredible rocks in the area. As kids, we pick them up and throw them, but there is so much more to rocks, especially in the Magic Valley. You never know what kind of gem could be lying at your feet or potentially a volcanic rock even. They come in all shapes, sizes, materials and some can be very beautiful. If you love minerals, gems, rocks, and jewelry made from these materials, then there is an event for you coming this month.
