Welcome to the...
New England Lapidary and Fossicking Club
POSTAL ADDRESS: P.O Box 82, Uralla. 2358

We are a family orientated club with the aim of getting out into the wide fresh air filled country side
fossicking for gem stones and minerals.

Each month we try to get a field trip organised for a single day and
sometimes for a weekend camping where possible.
Around November, a week long trip is organised for a great camping and
fossicking trip somewhere like Torrington or central Queensland or the Drake area.

In March of each year we run an Annual Gem and Craft show.
The show is held at the Armidale Showground.
Many exhibitors attend and a lot of bargains can be had by
the public that attend on the Saturday and Sunday.

Club members have all the facilities to cut and polish all their findings at the club house.
Rock cutting saws are available and very good advise can be sort from the very experienced members.
After the cutting you can cab and polish those ordinary looking rocks into very nice gem stones.
