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: Enhancements of Gemstones
Location: GMS Building

Thanks goes to Dion for his presentation on Face Terminology of Gemstones for the August meeting. We have been trying to have this program since March of this year. It’s always fun to look at faceted gemstones, to learn about the different shapes of facets, and to match them to the cutting pattern. Very interesting.

The topic for this month’s meeting is Gemstone Enhancements. We will learn about some of the enhancement processes used to increase the value of gemstones.

Once again, please RSVP, if you are planning to come to the meeting because we are limited to 15 people for the meeting.

As usual we will fold, address and stamp the paper copies of our newsletter and get them ready to mail before our meeting (if allowed). Hope to see everyone at the meeting.


Jay Gorday,
Gem Section Chair
