On March 23, 2010, Leroy Moore talked to us about the Oregon State's Gemstone, the Sunstone. About 40 people attended the dinner presentation. He showed a DVD explaining the different ways to find, mine, and process Sunstones. Oregon Sunstones can only be found in about a 7 square mile area near Hart Mountain in southeastern Oregon. Leroy had a display of faceted
rings and other beautiful jewelery. Also, he brought other stones showing the different colors Sunstones come in.
Prior to the presentation, everyone enjoyed a potluck dinner. Diane Sietz prepared the main course of fantastic barbequed beef. Others brought wonderful side dishes and a big selection of desserts. Thanks to everyone, it was a successful dinner and presentation.
