The Mozark Society of Lincoln, Missouri

The Mozarkite Society was organized in February, 2000, and incorporated in April, 2000. The officers for 2016 are: President: Kelly Blum 816-835-2044 Vice President: Ted Bolich 660-890-4983 Secretary: David Cox 660-473-5180 dlcjsedalia@gmail.com Treasurer: Joyce Grinstead 660-827-3888 jgrnstd@sbcglobal.net Our resident authority on Mozarkite is Linville Harms. His story of Mozarkite starts in 1957 when he discovered that the stone could be polished and made into jewelry. Before this it was referred to “as a stone that Indians made arrowheads for their everyday use.” In 1967, Senate Bill No. 216 was approved designating Mozarkite as the state rock for Missouri. Mozarkite is an attractive, highly-colored cryptocrystalline variety of quartz appearing in many colors and shades of colors such as red, blue, brown, pink, white, yellow, black raspberry, salmon and green which is very scarce. The formation of the stone created a “swirling” of the various colors. When the stone is “cut open or sliced”, (using a diamond edge saw blade), the exposed surface often reveals pictures. It takes little imagination to find faces, mountains, lakes, trees, waterfalls, etc. One such piece is displayed in the Truman Library in Independence bearing the likeness of a Missouri Mule. Mozarkite has a hardness of 7.5 to 7.75 on the Mohs scale (diamonds are 10), which qualifies it as a suitable material for semiprecious gemstone. The hardness allows the stone to be worked to a high polish.

STLMAGS meetingSt. Louis Mineral and Gem Society  ♦   Washington University  ♦  Saint Louis, Missouri Meetings:  7:30 pm   ♦  First Fridays of each month   ♦  September through May Mineral Photos                       St. Louis Mineral and Gem Society Welcome to our web site! We are The St. Louis Mineral & Gem Society, headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri. The “Gateway to the West” is also close to lots of interesting geology! Geodes, crystals, archeological super-sites, minerals, and fossils (some around 2 billion years old!) are day trips away from our front door. We meet at Washington University, near Forest Park, and take advantage of the experts who teach there. From an analysis of local flooding to a guided tour of the Mars Observers’ trips on Mars, speakers share their knowledge with us. These pages will give you a glimpse of who we are and what we are about.   Come and join us on First Fridays from September through May for a great time learning, fellowshipping, and supporting educational outreach programs across the area. Learn about us here and we look forward to meeting you soon! (And the snacks are just as outstanding as the programs!) Visitors are always welcome! No rockhound is ever truly happy until they have enough rocks stored around the house to hold it down in the event of a tornado! We have monthly field trips; most of the time we are collecting, but sometimes we do go just to learn! From minerals to fossils to geodes to quartz crystals (in Arkansas!), you can join us stooped over having fun. Kids are welcome most of the time too! Pebble Pups, our group for kids twelve and under, meets next-door to the main meeting for hands-on learning while the rest of us slog through the treasurer’s report and such. They then re-join us for snacks and the program. Each year at our November annual show, the Pebble Pups work to put together a display case of the specimens they have accrued over the past year.
