Rockin’ Into Spring Market Sale
The Museum and Archives of Vernon will host the Vernon Lapidary and Mineral Club’s Spring Rock & Gem Market on Saturday, April 2, from 10 AM to 3 PM.
Formed in 1959, the club has a long and vibrant history in the North Okanagan, and has hosted workshops, educational and social events for generations of “rock hounds” and “pebble pups.” The club was formed to share knowledge and encourage the collection and study of gemstones and minerals and to learn more about the historical and geological conditions within BC. Field trips around the North Okanagan and further afield encourage the ethical exploration of rocks and minerals. With constantly shifting landscape and geological conditions, members of the club continue to locate historical geological formations and learn more about the formation of our landscape over time.
Come learn about the club, see some rare and unique finds and hand-crafted creations available for purchase.
