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!
