Next Club Meeting: September 6, 2016 at the SLO Senior Center
Next Club Show: NEW VENUE!
October 29th & 30th, 2016 at the Cambria Vet's Hall
Welcome to the San Luis Obispo Gem & Mineral Club.
Our monthly club meetings are open to the public and we welcome everybody to attend.
We are members of the Central Coast community bound together by our common interests, and we strive to serve our community through a variety of means. We promote education through an annual Earth Sciences scholarship at Cuesta Community College, funded by the Club.
We also hold a gem, mineral, and jewelry show twice a year in order to better serve our community by providing a venue to view and purchase the mineralogical wonders of the Earth and ask questions of knowledgeable people.
We are an eclectic mix of fun-loving and intellectually-curious people who share a passion for rocks, minerals, gems, fossils, jewelry, rockhounding and/or lapidary art. Our club is open to anybody and everybody with gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, and creed being of no relevance whatsoever.
There are no social cliques in our club and none such are tolerated here. There is no drama as we are a tight-knit group which supports each other and all others in our hobby and throughout the Central Coast community.
