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.

In the upper right of this piece of amber you can see several insects, maybe ants, frozen in place. The amber was sanded and polished by one of our club members, and is such a great example. Thanks to the photographer for sharing his image with our club.
