Field trip to the Graves Mountain Kyanite Mine, October 5-7, 2018
The Dixie Mineral Council sponsored a three-day dig at Graves Mountain, and a group of us motored to the Mountain for Kyanite and other goodies. Of course, with hard diggin' comes hard eatin' afterwards (we worked hard). MORE PHOTOS COMING!

Members! If you're in any of these photos, please e-mail webmaster@lapidaryclub.com and tell me who's in the photo with you (use the numbers below the photos please).
