The Sequoia Gem and Mineral Society offers its members classes in lapidary arts. The classes have been moved to Los Altos (the Los Altos Cub and our club now share lapidary shop space) and will be held at 400 University Avenue, Shoup Park, Los Altos. The shop is in the Garden House building.
Weather and other conditions permitting, we sponsor or promote several field trips. Some of our field trips are one day in length, but many are overnight. We also provide information on field trips sponsored by other gem and mineral clubs throughout the West Coast.
Annually we host the Harvest of Gems and Minerals which is held in Redwood City. This year it is our 50th year of community outreach. From a very young child to a seasoned lapidary pro, there is a lot to see. One-of-a-kind items include slabs, mineral specimens, jewelry, tools and more. You’ll find beautiful displays of hand-cut stones, rocks, mineral specimens, fossils, or pieces of jewelry, illustrating creativity and vision through a wide range of interests by our members, dealers, demonstrators, or lapidary classes.
