    I am sure that this is way to late for my suggestion however, I will make it . A huge amount of residents in this area get paid the beginning of the month (1-3rd) and each year it is difficult with the show being at the very end of the month.

    what are your thoughts?
    sincerely,

    Washington specimens

    Hi, Panorama Gem and Mineral Club; 6-19-13
    My name Richard Jarboe wife Donna.
    We live in Oklahoma,and we belong to the Tulsa Rock and Mineral Society .I’m writing to see if you or some members would get together and send us a box of different specimens from Washington , like petrified wood, thundereggs, calcite, fluorite,minerals ,agates, jaspers,geodes, crystals,fossils,different crystals etc.
    We will pay the shipping cost. We wanted to visit the beautiful Washington and do some rock hunting..
    But our doctor put my wife on oxygen and it’s to had for her to carry it looking for specimens . My knees,to my ankles swell so bad I can’t get around much.
    Doctor said health wise we may not be able to our hobby anymore.We tried an oxygen dolly for the oxygen bottle it’s not possible .
    We love rock hounding .We’re in our 60’s
    We hope Panorama Gem and Mineral Club.Will send us a box full of different specimens.We will pay the shipping..
    Please send us a lot of different specimens ,large ,small . My wife started a display for different petrifed wood, thundereggs, minerals,jaspers,agates.
    Be waiting to get a e-mail from the Panorama Gem and Mineral Club.
    Please help us. It hurts us that we can’t go rock hunting anymore.
    Thank You Very Much

    we were at horse shoe mt. trip and found some very nice crystals, my question is how do we clean the clay from the crystals without damaging the crystal? we tried bleach solution and a mild muriatic acid mixture but does not remove the clay. does anyone have a solution to this. thanks jim peters

      Jim: I talked with Jerry Novak, who let your trip to horseshoe. He suggests a toothbrush and soapy water to clean them initially. After the clay is off, you can soak them in vinegar water. If you have a sand blaster, blasting with baking soda works well.

    betty peters has made grab bags for 2017 rock show. what to do with them? what time does the October meeting start? 6 or 7 ? she also has lots of material cut to size for more bags if some of the other weman would like to sew them. thanks Jim peters

      Jim and Betty: Thanks for all the hard work on the bags. Although Bill Allen is the overall rock show chairman, (936-2446), I think Johnie Pitman is a better choice to notify about bags, (684-8887). And yes, the meeting does start at 6PM this coming Tuesday and through the winter.

    I commit lapidary on beautiful slabs here in CA. I love sharing my hobby with others, so I’ve started a blog called http://www.LapidaryWhisperer.com I’m hoping that some of your members might enjoy my blog and the community for lapidary lovers I’m building.

    If possible, would you please put the message below in an upcoming newsletter and encourage members to share with people who might be interested.

    Best, Donna Albrecht
