About Ottawa Lapidary & Mineral Club (OLMC)
The Ottawa Lapsmith Club was founded as a small interest group in 1966. The club incorporated in 1997 and amalgamated with the Ottawa Valley Mineral Association to form the Ottawa Lapsmith & Mineral Club, thus expanding its field of interest to minerology as well as the many facets of lapidary work. Our club also organises an Annual Gem & Mineral Show in September each year, and it is always a big hit with local residents and rockhounds alike. New members are welcome to join at anytime.
Our club maintains a well-equipped 1500 sq. ft. workshop at 190-1C Collonade Road in Ottawa. The workshop is used for meetings, courses, and as a place where members can work independently during supervised workshop hours. The machinery available includes saws, flat laps, silicon carbide and diamond wheel grinders, faceting machines, silversmith tools and tumblers. A small Newsletter is free to members. From time to time, there are demonstrations, field trips and other special activities.
Collectively, our members have a wealth of talent and knowledge, which they are always willing to share with beginners and advanced users alike. We welcome everyone with an interest in mineralogy, jewellery or gemstones.
