Educational Rock Talks

    Members of our Club visit schools, youth groups, and clubs during the year to  give presentations .  Our goal is to promote interest in lapidary and earth science, as well as the study and preservation of nature.

We are deeply saddened to share that 

Marshall Havner passed away February 20, 2017,

He was doing what he loved to do, camping in the desert with friends.  He was a master of rock talks and we miss him very much.

You may contact Debbie at 559-972-1705 to schedule a Rock Talk.


Field Trips

     We take a variety of field trips throughout the year.  Some are for a few hours and others are overnight camping.  We may be looking for Thulite, Rose Quartz, Jade, Soapstone, Jasper, Benitoite, Palm Root, the list goes on and on!


Tool Day - Play Day

  Diamond Pacific Corporation hosts a weekend in which you can use a variety of lapidary tools and machines.  Don Depue will bring any other materials you may need, just give him a call.  Come to our April meeting to learn more.
