The program for January will be “Organic Gemstones” presented by Kim Cochran. An Organic Gemstone is gem material had the help of plants or animals to form.
Kim is one of our club members and former curator of the Weinman Mineral Museum and past president of the Georgia Mineral Society. He has given many excellent talks to the Athens Club in recent years, and this one should be both educational and entertaining.
Got specimens? (but don’t know what they are?) Bring them to the meeting, Kim can help you identify them. Come join us!
