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, April 24, 2017
Time: 7:30 pm
Topic: Cabbing Review
Location: GMS Building

I hope everyone enjoyed my talk on the Standard Round Brilliant (SRB) gemstone pattern. The SRB is usually the starting point if you want to try your hand at faceting.

This month we will review the cabbing process and the use of the club’s cabbing equipment. I hope that the workshop leaders and certifying instructors will lead this review.

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

Jay Gorday,
Gem Section Chair
