Peninsula Gem & Geology Society Lapidary Schedule

The PGGS lapidary shop is in the basement of the Garden House at Shoup Park, 400 University Ave., Los Altos, CA, 94022. This online schedule will be updated to show when it is open, so refresh or reload this page in your browser to confirm before visiting. Dropins and non-members welcome. Our shop location is leased from the City of Los Altos and is to be used for recreation and education, not for profit. Anyone can come and learn to use our equipment, but please do not ask to pay our club or other users to do projects for you. For more information, call Steve at 408-834-5384.

Our lapidary shop is now combined with the Sequoia Gem and Mineral Society (SGMS.)
