Next At The Museum!

The next meeting of the gem and mineral society will be on Wednesday, January 23, 2019 at 6 PM.

Note: this is the fourth Wednesday not the usual third Wednesday meeting night, because of the speaker’s schedule.

Australia Night at the Museum From 6 to 7 PM we will have light refreshments (snacks and dessert) with a taste of Australian wine. Everyone is welcome. Program starting at 7: “Australian Minerals in the John Weber Collection” by Dehne McLaughlin. Dehne is from Hobart, Tasmania and is a mineral collector and miner with a background in geology, biology and anthropology and he consults to Aboriginal groups in mining economics, indigenous resource negotiations and mine environmental management. He has been selling minerals at the Tucson show for many years and John Weber bought a few each year. John’s family donated his collection to the Pinal Geology Museum and his best Australian minerals are on exhibit. Come see the specimens and learn about where they came from and how they were found.
