Individually, some of us collect mineral or fossil specimens, others cut cabochons, facet gemstones, do metal work and make jewelry and other decorative objects. Many of us like field prospecting and being just plain rockhounds ... and a few of us do all those things.

The purpose of our club is to stimulate interest in the lapidary and metalworking arts and in geology, mineralogy, paleontology, and other related earth sciences.  It is also to promote understanding and appreciation of those arts and sciences; and to provide opportunities for learning and development of skills in those fields both for our own members and for the general public.

All ages are welcome. We have interesting events and special programs for junior members as well as our seasoned members.

 "When I heard that I could enter my collection into the fair I felt really good about it." said Logan, " I thought I could take first or second place." His Mother had entered him into the category of Lapidary Arts, Crystals or Mineral Collection. Click here for more information.
