The British Columbia Lapidary Society

Welcome to the official web site of the umbrella association for the rockhounding clubs of British Columbia, Canada

BCLS General Meeting

Spring meeting will be held Sunday, March 8, 2015 (1:00pm to 4:00pm) at Sullivan Hall, 6306 - 152 Street, Surrey, BC.

Annual General Meeting will be held the Sunday of the May long weekend at Rendezvous. Visit Rendezvous for more information.

Fall meeting will be held the first or second Sunday of October, whichever is not the Thanksgiving weekend.


The BCLS is a non-profit organization founded to encourage and promote the lapidary hobby in British Columbia. The organization consists of thirty charter member clubs, with a membership of approximately 1,500 people who collect rocks, minerals, crystals and fossils. The BCLS is a member of the Gem and Mineral Federation of Canada (GMFC) that offers a scholarship.
The Society presents an annual BC Gem & Mineral Show in April, which is well supported by clubs from across the province, plus numerous dealers from across North America.

Demonstrator at the Show

The Society organizes two major field trips -- the Annual Rockhound's Rendezvous in May each year to one of the affiliated clubs' areas, and the Summer Camp to explore a more remote region of the province.
