Oya Stone Museum 

On a visit to Japan last summer Bob Shively and his wife Jane visited the Oya Stone Museum. The porous Oya stone deposits were formed over 20 million years ago by subterranean volcanic eruptions. There’s an estimated 600 million tons of deposits in the Utsunomiya, Japan area. Oya “tuff” is easily worked and shaped making it very versatile for a wide range of construction uses such as houses, storage buildings, garden walls, pathways, steps, etc. Don’t miss this informative presentation.

Future Meeting Program. Date TBD

Everything you always wanted to know about Geodes

Geodes are one of Nature’s Wonders. There is no thrill like the thrill of finding an otherwise ugly rock and opening it find a world of beautiful and fascinating mineralogy. Wayne Dodd, an amateur rockhound with a fascination with geodes, will provide a reasonably detailed view of what geodes are, how they form (theory), where they can be found and what kinds of minerals you might find in them. The presentation will include pictures of collecting sites and minerals that can be found. Come and check it out. You might become as fascinated as he is!!
