We are a lapidary arts, paleontology, geology, gemology, rockhounding, and jewelry making club.

We welcome all visitors to come to our monthly meetings.


At our next club meeting on Tuesday October 17th, we will have a presentation from Josh Poole, a geologist with the Wellborn Mining from Tallapoosa County. Josh is with their gold mining operations on Hog Mountain in northern Tallapoosa County and will talk about their efforts to successfully restart gold mining back in Alabama.

At our club meeting in November, we will be preparing for the Gem Show in December. We will be having our refreshments catered in while we fill bags with rocks, minerals, fossils, specimens for our Wheel of Fortune grab bags and signing up for work slots at the show.

And as always, please bring an extra rocks, minerals, specimens for our grab bags and our monthly door prize.

Chris Rutherford,

Club President
