Annual Show Open Day

The Blaxland Gem and Mineral Club Inc

This club is situated in the heart of the Blue Mountains. Founded in 1965,
it is presently one
of the oldest lapidary clubs in N.S.W. 
The club rooms are in The Valley Road,
Valley Heights, opposite the railway station.

About The Workshop

A fully equipped workshop is available to all members for a small charge. For those wishing to learn more, there is a well stocked, comprehensive library (stones, minerals, fossils, facetting, silverwork) which may be used for free.

Fossicking trips are organised when possible, to introduce members to new areas for the collection of rocks and minerals. Naturally a tent or caravan is a handy item to have, but you do not need a four-wheel drive vehicle, but it could be a help.

The Annual Exhibition is held 3rd weekend each August this is open to the public and is now one of the best, well patronised lapidary functions in N.S.W.

Lapidary is not an expensive hobby and can be enjoyed by all members of the family.

No special skills are required and in the workshop there are instructors who are only too willing to impart their knowledge to any beginners.

The club is open at the following times

Monday and Tuesday from 9.00 am (instruction available)
Wednesday from 9.00 am to mid day
(no instruction available)
Thursday from
9.30 am (instruction available)
Friday from 9.00 am to mid day (instruction available)
Saturday 9.00 am to mid day  (no instruction available)

The workshop is open each of these times except for the General Meetings, when it opens after the meeting.
Members can come along to either work on the machines, or just to have a friendly chat and enjoy a cuppa.

The General Meeting is held on the second Tuesday of each month (except January) starting at 9.30 am.
