The Pleasant Oaks Gem and Mineral Club of Dallas is organized to promote interest in the various earth sciences, in particular those areas dealing with the science of gems, minerals and fossils, the art of cutting and polishing gemstones, metal crafts, jewelry arts, and all related fields. The club is a not for profit organization established for charitable and educational purposes.
The Pleasant Oaks Gem and Mineral Club publishes a monthly newsletter, the Chips and Chatter. Recent issues of the Chips and Chatter are available from the internet. For the latest issue of the Chips and Chatter (May 2013) in Adobe PDF format, click here .
The Pleasant Oaks Gem & Mineral Club offers a unique way to learn the various aspects of our rock hound hobby. Every other meeting we have hands-on sessions which could include mineral identification, wire wrapping, gem tree fabrication, and basic lapidary skills. If we are not holding a hands-on session then we will have a guest speaker or other presentation of general interest to all members. The Clubs also sponsors field trips and shares these trips with other clubs in the Dallas - Fort Worth area.
Please spend some time looking around our web site and if you like what you see, visit a meeting - visitors are always welcome. We would love to share our hobby with you.
