The Gem and Mineral Society of the Palm Beaches was founded in 1966 as a club for like-minded individuals who shared a passion for gems, minerals, the lapidary arts and geological sciences. 50 years later it still serves residents of Palm Beach County with those interests and more. At the clubs workshop one can find a variety of work being done – from silversmithing to cutting and polishing precious and semiprecious gemstones.  At meeting, members spread knowledge and fellowship for members of all ages. The youngest of the club members are mentored in the junior rockhound program with activities specially crafted just for them.

Each original piece of jewelry that Lynda Turek-Koehler creates shares components found in nature, at the ocean or in a mine.  She tells The Rickie Report, “I upcycle, repurpose items and go digging for gems!  By using shells, pearls and gems, I create unusual one-of-a-kind designs”.
