The club embraces a varied cross section of the hobby of Lapidary. Membership is open to members of the community aged from 12 years up with the majority of current members being mature aged persons.
The club gives tuition in the art of cutting and polishing precious and semi precious gemstones. Tuition is also offered in the art of Silversmithing, with participants producing some interesting pieces of jewellery.
Because Cairns is situated in close proximity to gemstone deposits of topaz, sapphires & garnets, to name a few, we have a great number of facetors within the club.
Another activity of current interest is the study of minerals and in particular, the collection and study of micromounts. When viewed under a microscope, these minerals allow one to marvel at nature’s natural wonders.
Premises are air-conditioned with well-maintained modern machinery under full supervision. Membership, tuition and workroom fees are easily affordable.
Open: Mondays 6.30pm - 9.30pm.
Wednesdays 8.30am – 4.00pm
Saturdays 9.00am - 4.00pm
