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 November or December Meeting

I hope everyone enjoyed our Open Topics October meeting. I gave a brief overview of the Gemstone Enhancements from the September meeting. Because this article had to be written before the meeting, I do not know who showed up and what their topics were.

There will not be meetings in November and December because of the holidays being close to our meeting dates. We will resume our meetings in January 2021.

In the meantime, I will be looking into seeing if we can include a Google Meet link for those members who cannot attend the meeting in person. There are a few details to be worked out to be able to include the virtual meeting as well as a live meeting.

Jay Gorday,
Gem Section Chair

NOTE: Temporary procedures are in place for section meetings, including RSVP before attending. Please read those procedures and guidelines here.
