Join OBMS Meetup Group

Orange Belt Mineralogical Society (OBMS) - established in 1933.  A non-profit club of rock enthusiasts who hunt for rocks, develop their lapidary skills, and fabricate jewelry and rock artifacts in a workshop in San Bernardino, California.  We organize hunts for rocks and teach lapidary, wire wrapping, silversmithing, and lost wax casting skills.
                                                                      You can make a cabachon on your first visit.
