Septarian Concretions from Southwest Utah
Please join the Culver City Rock and Mineral Club on August 8, 2016 at 7:30 p.m. at the Veterans Memorial Auditorium, in the Multi-Purpose Room, to welcome Dick & Mary Pat Weber who will speak on Septarian Concretions from Southwest Utah. Septarian concretions have been collected from Utah as mineral specimens and lapidary material for more than one hundred years. They are prized for their bright yellow calcite and aragonite crystals, standing in sharp contrast to the gray limestone matrix. In recent years this material has become popular for carvings and free-form jewelry.
Dick Weber holds a Masters Degree in Sedimentary Petrology from the University of Minnesota and worked as an exploration geologist throughout the United States. He began collecting Septarians in 1978 and will bring specimens from his personal collection of both rough and polished material.
See you there!
Guests are always welcome.....
