Rock and Mineral Clubs (Part I) provided ideas for the initial organization of rock and mineral clubs. In order for club members to develop this avocation to its fullest, a number of basic skills have to be mastered and some equipment must be acquired. The basic skills include rock, mineral and fossil identification and collection, as well as skills in lapidary such as tumbling, cutting, shaping and mounting gemstones.
