ROSEBURG, Ore. -- A club in Douglas County is showing off some shiny treasures this weekend.

The Umpqua Gem and Mineral Club is hosting its 48th Rock and Gem Show.

It features rock cutting demonstrations, displays, and a rock scavenger hunt.

Organizers say their ultraviolet black light display is a crowd favorite.

"We have little kids just in awe looking at the rocks,” says club president John Woodman. “We try to educate people on how this works.”

The Rock and Gem Show starts this Saturday morning at 9 at the Douglas County Fairgrounds.
