PLS Takes a Look at Picture Rocks for January 21 Program Meeting

One happy Geode!

Pasadena Lapidary Society members are continually picking up rocks, wondering what might be inside if cut. More often than not, as one might guess, the inside of a rock can be very similar to the outside.  Every now and then, however, we’re happily surprised to find a sparkling cluster of crystals, bursts of unexpected colors or even images inside a rock.  These images can be eerily realistic, or perhaps resemble an impressionist painting of beach scenes, faces, landscapes, etc.  Ken Rogers of the Culver City Rock & Mineral Club, will be the featured speaker at our Tuesday, January 21st meeting when he discusses “Pictures in Rocks”.  Attendees of the meeting are encouraged to bring their own favorite picture rocks to share on the Display Table.

Our January Rock of the Month talk will be presented by PLS member David Lacy with a focus on Feldspar.  Did you know that Moonstone and Labradorite are feldspars? Come to the meeting to find out more about this luminescent mineral.

The Tuesday, January 21st meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. in the Donald R. Wright Auditorium of the Pasadena Main Library at 285 E. Walnut Street, Pasadena, CA 91101.  Open to the public. FREE.  Come join us for some rock fun!
