Our Club caters for anyone interested in Gems, Lapidary, Faceting, Fossil and Mineral Collecting. We are keen collectors of everything terra firma.

We meet monthly in our clubrooms at the rear of the Whangarei Museum & Heritage Park. The clubrooms are open on the third Sunday of each month, when the miniature trains are also running, and during Kiwi North Open Days.  Visitors are welcome. There are rocks, minerals and fossils on display, plus some polished rocks and jewellery for sale. Club members are happy to assist in rock identification, and to demonstrate rock cutting and polishing techniques.

Members receive our monthly newsletter "Stone Age News".

If you're interested, come along and see us, to find out more.
