The Scottish Mineral & Lapidary Club at Dynamic Earth’s Moon Event

The Scottish Mineral & Lapidary Club has revived and fostered the craft of the lapidary – the engraving, cutting, or polishing of stones and gems; with the objective to encourage an interest in natural minerals and in the crafts and craftsmanship that relates to them.

From Friday 19 – Monday 22 July, the club will put up a display of lapidary work and minerals / materials related to Space, Earth’s Crust, and the Moon at the event in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing at Dynamic Earth.

For those who can’t wait: the club is situated in Leith, and a lot more of information about its work can be found on the club’s website.
