Come Rock With Us – Richmond Gem and Mineral Society (Culture Days)
Richmond Cultural Centre
7700 Minoru Gate
10am-3pm
The Richmond Gem and Mineral Society welcome you to join us as we introduce you to our club activities and share our Lapidary skills. The first stop is the Culture Centre Plaza where you can view our boutique table. See examples or what we create with our rocks and silversmithing tools. Try your hand at creating a simple necklace, bookmark or ring. Test your knowledge with the Rock Identification game. If you have a rock you would like identified, bring it along. Boutique items are for sale. Second stop is the lapidary studio on the second floor. Watch as rough rock is cut into slabs, shaped into preformed cabochons, and finally polished to create a finished cabochon. Observe jewellery being created in silversmithing. There is something to pique everyone’s interest.
