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: July 30, 2018
Time: 7:30 pm
Speaker: Diana Poppelreuter
Topic: Wire Wrapping a Quartz Crystal
Location: GMS Building

A big thank goes to Lori Carter who led us last month making a little flower pot decoration using beads and wire. You missed a fun program if you could not attend.

This month Diana Poppelreuter is going to show us how to wrap a quartz crystal (or any long thin object). You will need to bring pliers if you have them and a favorite crystal if you want to have it wrapped. We will have extra pliers and quartz points if you do not have these.

I hope to see everyone at the meeting. As usual, we will fold, address and stamp the paper copies of the Tips and Trips before the meeting starts.

Jay Gorday,
Gem Section Chair
