Gem Section Meets
Last Monday Every Month

Ah, the jewels of the rockhounding world. Gems come in many different forms, but one thing is usually certain -- someone took something normal and transformed it into something spectacular!

Join us at Gem Section to see rocks when they are all dressed up and even dress up a few yourself!

Date: January 29, 2018
Time: 7:30 pm
Topic: 3 of the 5 “C’s”
Location: GMS Building

I hope everyone enjoyed his/her holiday season, I know I did. It’s time to get back to our normal routines.

January’s Gem Section meeting will be a close inspection of 3 of the 5 “C’s”, Color, Clarity, and Cut. Deon will bring microscopes from school, we will have Optivisors and hand loupes all for our use in closely inspecting gemstones. We will have various gemstones to look at and invite you to bring your cut stones to look at. It should be a lot of fun.

As usual, we will fold, address and stamp next month’s T&T before the Gem section meeting starts.

Jay Gorday,
Gem Section Chair
