2019 Speakers

Jump to speaker schedule.

Drop in for one of our illustrated talks for a more in-depth look at the worlds of minerals, fossils, meteorites, and gemstones. Our slate of expert speakers share their knowledge on various aspects of the show theme, in this case Gold and Silver, and collecting in general.

Audiences are treated to geologic histories, travel journals, collecting stories, and technical perspectives, which provide backstories and cultural context to collecting and collections. The intimate setting and Q&A sessions personalize the sessions.

In addition to the invited field of experts, local luminaries talk on general subjects such as fluorescence and collection building. And in keeping with our educational mission, the Denver Gem & Mineral Show proudly hosts talks given by various members of the Pikes Peak Pebble Pups, a group of young amateur geologists, paleontologists, and mineralogists who share a passion for field work.

All of the talks are included in the show admission fee, and seating is available on a first-come first-served basis.
