Towns and counties across North Carolina, in particular, western N.C., take their mineral heritages seriously, and several proudly hold annual festivals, fairs and shows to celebrate their rich gem, mineral, and mining history and culture. Xpo Press publishes one of our "EZ-Guides" for North Carolina because we believe the region is one of the richest in the world for hosting important gem, mineral, bead and jewelry related shows. The North Carolina EZ-Guide, and this section of the International EZ-Guide, focus on the gem shows in the western N.C. towns of Franklin and Spruce Pine, because towns host two of the largest and most celebrated gem "showcases" in the world.
