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.

Jasper Hill Claim And Other News


Closing in on our Jasper Hill Claim. The monument pole was set by Bernie, it is located at the base of the hill. The claim was recorded on Monday, July 27th. The claim name is the D.L.R. Jasper/Hill claim. These are the initials of our Don Reading, and in memory of him, he was the one who showed us the way to this great spot. A very exciting happening, and as soon as the desert cools down from melting degrees we will be exploring this beautiful, and now ours, rocky treasure.

We owe so many thanks to Bernie, Randy, and Donna for taking the steps to make this happen. If I have left anyone out of this Thank You, my humble apologies, you are all so very much appreciated.

The final leg of this process will be the trip to Sacramento to the BLM office, and the payment for the claim.

Our next summer activity will be the planning of our club cases for the Fair. The committee will meet starting in August, if you want to join in please do and contact me or Donna Rodriguez, phone numbers are in your rosters. If you need a roster email me at slarsen71@gmail.com.

The Hooney field trip will be in late August. Bernie Bensten is in charge. This will be a very special trip. Contact Bernie for more information.

We will meet again on September 12th at Marvin and Char's home in NW Bakersfield. This will be a potluck and social time. Hope all of you are having a relaxing summer and will be ready to go in September.
