First Tuesday Class

Every month, CCGMS offers a free class to its members in good standing. These classes vary from topic to topic, but all have to do with the mission of CCGMS, which is bringing the study of rocks, minerals, gemstones, fossils, and the lapidary arts to the community. It is our hope that these classes will spark the creativity of the students and bring about further study.
