The Lapidary Society was atarted by Ray Mobley on February 13, 1989. The Society joined the Midwest Federation of Mineralogical and Geological Society (MWF) in 1990. Ray was owner of Emerald Rock Shop and later his son Ed took over the shop. Ed teaches silversmithing now.
Our goal is to advance lapidary and faceting skills while introducing beginners to the
art of working with stone and crystals. We accomplish this through mutual exchange
of information between members and through guest speakers, demonstrations, and exhibits. We welcome the novice, aspiring student and accomplished expert of all ages.
We have classes to teach wire wrap, beading, faceting, cabbing, and jewelry making.
Our interest include beading, cabbing, carving, faceting, lapping, rock tumbling, and jewelry making of all kinds. We also take field trips to interesting places to look for rocks and minerals, museums that offer interest to our members, and other club's shows. We take part in the GEOFAIR held each year in Cincinnati giving demonstrations, and offering information on lapidary in general.
Membership is open to all who are interested
in any of the GCL&FS programs.
Dues are $15 per family, $13 per single,
and $6 per junior membership per year.
Guests are always welcome.
