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, teach lapidary, wire wrapping, silversmithing, and lost wax casting skills.
You can make a cabochon on your first visit!

at the workshop for our MONTHLY
POT-LUCK BBQ/MEMBERSHIP MEETING!
OBMS members have a BBQ on the 2nd Saturday of every month. This is a good time to come on down and tour the workshop. You can start working with stone, on a nice piece of jewelry or that rock you've been meaning to cut while enjoying some good food with good people.
Bring a favorite dish that you know everyone will like. Bring a friend. Enjoy the warm and friendly atmosphere of fellow rock hounds. Like always, donations are welcome.
