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!

No Meeting in May

I hope everyone enjoyed Sue’s talk on Organic Gems (part 2). It was a very good presentation with many pictures of organic gems from her collection. As I write this almost a month before the meeting, Sue said thanks for the kind words in this NL article.

There will not be a May Gem Section Meeting due to our meeting day being Memorial Day. We will pick back up in June with Diana talking about their trips.

One other item, we are next up to fill the Section Case at the clubhouse. We discussed this in the April meeting. If you have anything “Gem related” to put in the case for about 3 to 4 months, let me know. We will aim for the June meeting to have the material and to arrange the case. Thanks for showing off your objects.

Since we will not be meeting, I will arrangement to get the NL folded, addressed, stamped and mailed.

We hope to see everyone at our May Show and back to normal in June.

Jay Gorday and Diana Poppelreuter
Gem Section Co-Chairs
