A Special GMS Group
for People Interested in Gems
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!

I hope everyone enjoyed my presentation on Faceting Equipment and Supplies for our September meeting and our Update on the GMS Lapidary Workshop for the October meeting.
There will not be a Gem Section Meeting in November or December because of the Holidays. We will pick up again in January 2023.
We are always looking for topics for our programs, so if you have an idea for a program, let us know at and we will see if we can find a speaker. Also, if you are willing to give us a program on a gem related topic, we would love to have your talk at one of our meetings.
We will have to make other arrangements for getting the newsletters ready to mail in November and December.
