The Rochester Lapidary Society is open to everyone of all ages! Our only age requirement is for use of the club’s equipment. The insurance states that you must be at least 10 years of age to operate the powered equipment. Stone carving and other activities have no age limitations. Youth participation is welcome at our club.
The Rochester Lapidary Society also has quite a collection of library books, magazines, and videos on lapidary, rock and mineral collecting, jewelry making, and much more. All members are allowed to borrow anything from the library as long as they return it the following month, or at one of our many workshops.
The primary mission of the Rochester Lapidary Society is education in the Lapidary Arts. This includes finding or collecting specimens, identifying and then, possibly using the finds in projects.
Children and rocks go together like peanut butter and jelly, so what could be better than encouraging this natural interest? Over the past few years we have expanded our community presence in the Brockport School District.
