The inaugural Perth Gem & Mineral Show (PGMS) was held at the Curtin Stadium on 17–19 September 2021. It showcased many of the wonders that the mineral, gem and geoscience communities have to offer, with a special focus on Western Australia’s mineral heritage.

The event attracted a large contingent of mineral collectors, geologists, jewellers, mining professionals, students, hobbyists and commercial dealers. It will showcase businesses from the mineralogical, geological and geoscience sectors, and offered vendors and exhibitors a unique exposure across a broad spectrum of industry professionals and the general public.
