May 2013 SLOGMC Meeting

Tonight I attended the May meeting of the San Luis Obispo Gem & Mineral Club. We had a lively confab about a host of things but primarily we discussed our upcoming show next month and upcoming field trips. Below are images of some of the visual highlights of the get-together.

Mike Lyon's "Find of the Month" submission for which I voted: a gemmy blue-green cobble he recently found along the Big Sur Coast.
The winning submission of "Find of the Month" was this Pre-Cambrian worm hole-infested rock from Death Valley, CA.
