Hosted by the Toowoomba Lapidary Club, some 25 gem and jewellery dealers coming from Central Queensland in the north, to Sydney in the south, will collectively put together a visually spectacular expo inside the Assembly Hall. All items are for sale and everyone is invited. Outside the hall, many stalls also sell jewellery, gemstones and mineral specimens. Opal miners take advantage of the outdoor sun to enhance the kaleidoscope of rainbow colours.
