Due to continued concerns about Covid 19, the club is enforcing the CDC recommendations that people wear masks and socially distance themselves at all club sponsored events.

There is a GMSS Club Meeting on October 19th  !

Susan and Len Sharp will talk about fluorescent minerals. Using specimens from their world wide collection, they will show how ultraviolet light activates fluorescent minerals and causes them to temporarily emit visible light of various colors. They will also discuss how some fluorescent minerals may be slightly radioactive due to very small amounts radioactive elements contained in their crystal structure.

Following the presentation, the Sharps will generously donate their fluorescent mineral collection to the club !   Be sure to thank them !
