Welcome. We are Port Hacking Lapidary Club, a highly social group of rockhounds and gemstone enthusiasts based in the heart of the Sutherland Shire.
Come for a cuppa, and stay for the opportunity to learn about and participate in the many crafts on offer.
Our clubhouse is fully equipped for crafts related to lapidary, the cutting and polishing of gemstones, including cabochoning, faceting, silverwork, jewellery-making, Lost-wax casting, enamelling and carving. We also have a small library of books for club members and a designated break for coffee and biscuits!
