Organized in May 2008 in Oroville, California, the club's goals are to educate members through field trips, lectures, classes and hands-on experience. The club has a top-rated rock cutting and polishing shop. Members learn to cut, shape and polish rock for jewelry and objects of art. Members conduct outreach programs to schools to increase knowledge and interest to students and teachers.
The club hosts an annual show every September in Chico which includes dealers, jewelry, rough rock, equipment, a raffle, and much more for families and children. The show has grown throughout the years attracting thousands of attendees, and gives our members a chance to show off their artwork.
