Coastal Branch Library Lecture Series: Sandra & David Berquist on Revealing the Inner Beauty of Stones
Sandra and David Berquist will present Revealing the Inner Beauty of Stones on Wednesday, January 20 at 10 am at the South Walton Coastal Branch Library.
The Berquists will display and discuss a large variety of semi-precious stones and explain the process for cutting, shaping and polishing these stones as well as creating jewelry.
The Berquists are members of the Playground Gem and Mineral Society in Fort Walton Beach. This club provides members the opportunity to use a variety of lapidary tools, learn about the geology of our area, take field trips to places where stones and fossils can be found in Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, Arkansas and Texas and enjoy socializing with other rock hounds.
The club is open to interested individuals and families from our area and provides lapidary and jewelry-making classes from introductory through intermediate levels. Learn more at www.playgroundgem.org.
