Lapidary and jeweler Sky Paxton will share his love and knowledge of agates with us on Friday, Sept. 21, 7-9 pm at the Moss Landing Harbor Master’s Office.
Sky will share slides with examples of various types of agates, locations where they are found and some factors that affect prices.
He’ll also give us some tips on hardness and cleavage planes of popular stones which affect their use in certain types of settings.
Sky has been working with stones for many years, so bring your questions about working with these varied and beautiful stones.
This meeting is free and open to the public.
The address is 7881 Sandholdt Road, Moss Landing. After you enter the driveway to the Harbor parking lot go to the building all the way to the end of the parking lot on your right, “Harbor Master’s Office”.
