Pecora Rocks the Lapidary Arts​   

 

Did you know, that there are secrets buried within the foundations of a career in the “Lapidary Arts “?
Why do they call it Lapidary anyway?  We all know what a woodworker does...right?  Travel back in time to when Roman Royalty ruled the empire of the then known world.
Learn about the world of crystals where metaphysical rules and energy radiates. Rock of Ages, you’ll touch and feel
numerous lapidary demonstration stones that are the backbone of Pecora’s Mica Mine Schoolhouse. Travel right on through to modern day, and explore the use of diamond tools of all sorts.

This is a great “Show, Touch, Feel, and Tell” presentation. So come and be prepared to participate!

Flood Basalts and Mass Extinctions

 

Paleontologists and geologists believe that meteor impacts are the cause of mass extinctions, but some believe these trigger massive eruptions that really create the demise of creatures. What is the proof? When did they occur and is there a future threat? We will see samples and discuss specimens you may bring.

Hope to see you there.
