Pasadena Lapidary Society will hold its monthly meeting (open to the public) on Tuesday, February 20, 2018 at 6:45 p.m., in the Donald Wright Auditorium of the Pasadena Main Library, 285 E. Walnut Street, Pasadena, 91101. February program presenters are Dick and Mary Patt Weber, well-traveled geologists, who will talk about their tours of Thunder Bay, a Canadian amethyst mine. They are sure to bring some sparkling specimens to show the group. And, as the club prepares for its annual show in March, Jennifer Nishimura, a Junior member, will share her experiences competing in state and national competitions with her winning display cases of cabochons and hand-made jewelry. Free admission; light refreshment.
The Pasadena Lapidary Society serves to educate its members and the community in mineralogy, earth sciences and training in the lapidary and jewelry arts – while promoting sound mineral resource stewardship based on environmental awareness and ethical behavior. The Society fulfills its mission year-round with a variety of activities, including field trips, lapidary workshops, outreach presentations, public mineral displays, an annual club show (March 10 and 11, 2018), and monthly informational meetings open to the public.
