Blue Grass Gem and Mineral Club
We are a group of hobbyists and professionals that have come together to share our love of rocks, gems, minerals, fossils, jewelry, and specimen collection. We have monthly meetings with an educational program, rock auction, door prizes, raffles and a business meeting. Currently our meetings are at the Tates Creek Public Library on Tates Creek Road or at the Beaumont Library on Harrodsburg Road in Lexington, KY. We meet the third Sunday of every month at 1:00 PM in the library's community room.
We encourage rock enthusiasts to join us at our meetings. We also lead monthly field trips for members to various sites around Kentucky and the surrounding region. At various times during the year we also sponsor gem and mineral shows that provide an opportunity for the public to see and purchase, rocks, gems, minerals and jewelry.
If you would like further information, you may contact Jane Volk, Membership and Communications, by email or come to a meeting.
Guests Are Always Welcome.
