Another type of sale is taking place at Portsmouth Olympic Harbour this weekend.
Gemstorm 2016 is the Kingston lapidary and mineral club’s 47th annual gem and mineral show.
Rare stones and minerals like these large pieces of amethyst were available for sale.
For the past 18 years it’s been held at Portsmouth Olympic Harbour but has grown so much they’re moving to a bigger venue next summer.
Organizers say planning for the annual event takes place year-round.
Les Moss: “When this show is finished we have already booked it for next year. Now we’ll go, my wife and I – we’ll go into the planning stage of who we want back and where are they going to locate. We’ll try not to get two dealers who are selling the same thing side by side. We’ll just organize the whole thing and make sure everybody’s happy.”
