Mineral dealers from all over the world will descend on H-town for the 2nd Annual Houston Fine Mineral Show this weekend. For those readers who are unfamiliar with fine minerals, they're the crystals and stones exhibited in museums, like our own Cullen Hall of Gems and Minerals at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. We're not saying you can pick up a museum-quality crystal at the show, but everything is sure to be shiny and sparkly. 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. Embassy Suites Hotel, 2911 Sage Road. For information, visit www.finemineralshow.com. Free.
April 30-May 1, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; Sun., May 2, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., 2010
