The club has a Lapidary Center where members can go to cut and polish stones that can be used to create jewelry. The center is equipped with trimming saws, a drill press, and a variety of grinding and polishing machines. An assortment of rough material is available for member’s use, and classes are held periodically.
The Lapidary Center is in the Barnes Nature Center, 175 Shrub Road, Bristol.
