All About Us

We are a non-profit rockhound club. Our purpose is to teach lapidary skills, promote the rockhound hobby and most of all HAVE FUN.  We have a Monday evening workshop where we teach cutting and polishing stones.  We have classes in silversmithing, wire wrapping, chain making, bead stringing, flint knapping, sand art and others.

Other activities include field trips and our annual gem and mineral show the second weekend in April at the Abilene Civic Center.

Our workshop is located on hwy 277 southwest of Abilene about 4.7 miles west of 83-84 bypass (winters freeway).  It is a yellow metal building on southeast side of hwy.  There is no sign.  Just head toward San Angelo on 277 and you can't miss us.


Adults $15 per year

Juniors (15 years and younger)  $10 per year

We are at the club house every Monday evening (except holidays) from 7:00 till 9:30 with a short business meeting, program and refreshments, the first Monday of each month. Visitors are welcome any time. We will let you pick out a rock and help you get started. Come on out and join in the fun!
