Peninsula Gem and Geology Society 
Description: On a sunny Sunday in April, 1950, while sitting in a quarry on Half Moon Bay Road, the Rock Identification Class at the Palo Alto Adult Education taught by Lawrence Fuller appointed a temporary committee to write up a club's constitution and by-laws. They were approved in October and forty two charter members held their first meeting of the Palo Alto Geology Society. The founding members were interested primarily in rocks, their composition, their origins, their age and transformations. Today, we have an updated lapidary, a Vendor Show and a hope for new members.
