Mineralogy Group

This group is all about minerals, how to identify them, geology and the locations they can be found. Topics are decided on by the group leader and the members. The group meets every second Tuesday of each month at 6:30 pm, at the Clubhouse with current club members. Charles Creekmur leads the group.
