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 December

We hope everyone enjoyed our October meeting on Dopping Techniques. The people out in Zoom land did not get to see the PowerPoint presentation. We have placed the PowerPoint file and a document with all the zoom links on this page (above).

There will not be a December Gem Section Meeting due the Holidays. We will pick back up in January 2024

We will arrange to get the Tips and Trips ready to mail.

I hope to see everyone online thru the virtual meeting or In person at the clubhouse for the January 2024 Gem Section Meeting, in the meantime, stay safe and Happy Holidays!

Jay Gorday and Diana Poppelreuter
Gem Section Co-Chairs
