From June 29th to September 30th the SMS lapidary shop will be open from 9am to 2pm on Saturday and Sunday to help beat the heat.

The Educational Meeting will start at 7pm, and tonight's speaker Jim Hutchings!

Jim will be doing an educational presentation about "The Minerals of Topaz Mountain". He will be discussing the geology and current access to such gemstones like Red Beryl, Topaz crystals, Psuedobrookite, Bixbyite, and Hematite. He will also be going over the necessary equipment and preparations for digging at this site, as well as have specimens for examining!

It is sure to be a great presentation!!

Following the presentation we will have our Raffle, Attendance Drawing, and last, but not least, our monthly live Rockhound Auction.

Also don't forget to bring in your June/July* Monthly Challenge entry! The June/July Monthly Challenge is to bring in anything made from agate!! All entries will be put into a drawing to win 3 free shop hours!!

* June & July's Monthly Challenge was combined since we skipped the meeting last month due to the CFSM show.
