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!

Time: 7:30 pm
Topic: Faceted-Stone Shape Classification
Location: Virtual Meeting (Link here when available)

Thanks to Sue for her program on Organic Gems. I hope everyone enjoyed it. She had some very nice pictures of Amber from her collection.

This month our program will be on Shapes of Faceted Stones. I plan to show diagrams and pictures of different shaped faceted stones. This program will be virtual only via Zoom. The meeting will start at 7:30PM and the Zoom link will open at 7:00PM for general discussion and visiting. I look forward to the day we can all get together for our meetings. There is light at the end of the tunnel.

We will make arrangements to fold, stamp and address the paper copies of the newsletter before the meeting.

I hope to see everyone online thru the virtual meeting and in the mean time, stay safe!

Jay Gorday,
Gem Section Chair
