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!

Date: April 30, 2018
Time: 7:30 pm
Speaker: Juergen Poppelreuter
Topic: Quartzsite, Arizona Trip
Location: GMS Building

Last month Pat showed us how to make a wire wrapped pair of ear rings. Pat is a very talented artist and excellent teacher. If you get a chance, you take one of her classes at William Holland. She teaches several weekly sessions at William Holland workshops throughout the year.

This month, Juergen will tell us about his trip to Quartzite this winter. He was able to take many field trips and was able to use the local club's saws and lapidary equipment to check out his material before he shipped them home. This should be an interesting meeting, hope to see everyone there.

As a note, there will not be a May Gem Section meeting because it falls on Memorial Day.

As usual, we will fold, address and stamp next month’s T&T before the Gem section meeting starts.

Jay Gorday,
Gem Section Chair
