The Palomar Gem and Mineral Club 

The Palomar Gem and Mineral Club, a non-profit corporation open to all adults and young people, was organized to promote the study of rocks, minerals, gems, fossils and related subjects, such purpose to be developed through regular meetings with educational programs, field trips for the collection of geological specimens, and classes for teaching lapidary arts. The Palomar Gem and Mineral Club shares its knowledge of the earth sciences by sponsoring Gem and Mineral shows featuring exhibits, displays and demonstrations. The Club was founded March 20, 1954.

The Palomar Gem and Mineral Club operates a fully equipped Lapidary Workshop for the exclusive use of our club members. The shop is well equipped and is supervised by experienced lapidary craftsmen and women. A small fee is collected for each session. Please check our website or newsletter for the latest open workshop days and times. This is also where  we hold our special classes in lapidary arts and jewelry making activities. These include silversmithing, faceting, wire wrapping and many others. Please refer to our website or newsletter for a list of upcoming classes and fees. The workshop is closed when classes are being held.

March Meeting

Celebrate 64 years!
The Palomar Gem and Mineral Club has been in existence for 64 years.  As is tradition, our March meeting will be our potluck birthday celebration.

Bring your favorite main dish, or side to share.  Birthday cake will be available.  Also bring your own place settings as minimal settings will be available for those who forget.

New this year!  We are going to have an auction of some items that have been donated over the year that we think our members might be interested in.  Come and be prepared for some good time and reminiscing on the past 64 years.

We look forward to seeing everyone there!

As always, our meetings are open to the public.  If you are genuinely interested in learning more about our club and what we have to offer, please feel free to join one of our meetings. 

See ya there!
