GEm & Minerals

This collection was donated and is maintained by members of the Deming Gem & Mineral Society.

There is a fine display of petrified woods, gems and minerals from all over the world. A popular item is the casting of a dinosaur skin, and also a black light display of fluorescent minerals, which allows visitors to view the natural rock and experience the way it changes under black light.

Be sure to point out the mammoth tusk and mammoth tooth that were found in gravel pits near Deming.
