March General Meeting – Thursday, March 10th (Click for More Info)

Meeting Topic: I have heard from several members they are having a hard time obtaining a good polish when tumbling rocks. This month, several of our members will speak on the various polishing methods. A question and answer session will follow. Hopefully, you will solve your tumbling problems at this meeting.

Do you have some rocks that are not polished to your liking and want to know what to do next? Then, please bring them to the meeting and get your questions answered.

Do you have some soft rocks and want to know how you can polish them?? Then, bring them too and learn how to polish them.

Show ‘n Tell: Bring rocks or minerals you would like identified. Our members that are very knowledgeable on identification will give it a go. Of course, we can’t guarantee to identify everything, but they will give it a good try.

Great Tumbling Resource: The Rock Tumbler’s website. It has a great how-to library.
