"Rough Cutters" Faceting Group
This is an informal group of people who enjoy talking and sharing information, and a great way to get started if you have an interest in faceting your rough gemstones and would like to know more.
There is no joining - no dues - just a group that enjoys talking about faceting.
The "Rough Cutters" meet on the second Friday of every month, at 1 p.m. at the Willamalane Adult Activity Center on West "C" Street in Springfield.
Come and enjoy seeing some beautiful faceted stones.
By the way, members of our Club volunteer at Willamalane Adult Activity Center Rock Shop on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. in the Center's Rock Shop. You can come in and learn how to use the different types of lapidary equipment.
The cost for the usage is $4.50 per day for those living in Springfield, and $5.00 for those living out of city (for instance in Eugene). The charge is the same whether you come in at 9 a.m. or 1 p.m. If you want a small rock cut, an additional charge of $3.50 per slab applies. If it is a much larger rock, the charge is $4.50 per slab.
If you want to learn how to turn a rock into a lovely piece of jewelry, here is the place to learn!
