We are a 501 (c)(7) club that consists solely of volunteers and meets monthly to discuss lapidary topics, mineral collection and geology. We are the hosts of the annual Fall Festival of Gems at the Kitsap Fairgrounds and Events Center each November. We have club auctions, run meeting programs, and have field trips to local collection sites. We are also members of the Washington State Mineral Council. Check out their website below and view field trips. View our Facebook page for current discussions and to connect with others. We also sponsor scholarships each year. Scroll down to to read more. Check out our club mentors list, and contact us with questions on specific lapidary techniques you might be interested in.
