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: Monday, March 27, 2017
Time: 7:30 pm
Speaker: Jay Gorday
Topic: Standard Round Brilliant facet pattern
Location: GMS Building

A big thank you goes to John Iacullo for bringing us the February program. His talk on Gold – the Good, the Bad and the Ugly was very informative. You missed a good program if you were not there.

I will be our speaker for March. We will use my educational display that has been on display at the clubhouse and talk about the Standard Round Brilliant facet pattern. It should be a facet-nated evening (ha ha ha!).

I hope to see everyone in March. As usual, we will start the evening by folding, stamping and addressing the hard copies of T&T about 7PM and move on to the main program about 7:30PM

Jay Gorday,
Gem Section Chair
