About Us

The San Joaquin Valley Lapidary Society is located in Bakersfield, California. We are a group of rock hounds dedicated to the sharing of knowledge about the lapidary arts. We meet weekly for workshops in lapidary, silversmith, and wire wrapping/beading. We were founded in 2005, and are incorporated as a 501 (c) 3. Part of our focus is education, and offer a program for area elementary school 4th and 6th graders that supplements their geology studies.

ROCK SALE June 13, 20, 27th


Rock Sale: Bakersfield, 11101 Cave Ave., Steve Jensen.


Recently a friend bought a house that was owned by a rock hound who has gone on to greater pickings. At this house was a large cache of rocks and equipment, which I hauled to my house, sorted, fixed, etc.

I want to get this stuff in the hands of someone who can use it (and out of my yard). I am planning 3 consecutive Saturdays to allow rock clubs and individuals to come and go through this material, which I have cleaned and categorized. I am in the process of cleaning and repairing the equipment to get it ready for sale as well. While I do have these dates/times set up, I can set appointments for you to come at other times. I DO NEED TO KNOW IF YOU OR YOUR CLUB IS PLANNING TO COME so please contact me through e-mail, sjensen@bak.rr.com and let me know so I can prepare and know what to expect. The dates and location are as follows:

Saturdays, June 13, June 20, and June 27, 2015

9 am to 1-2 pm (or later)
