LIVERMORE VALLEY LITHOPHILES
Gem and Mineral Society
 

The society's most important event of the year is our Gem and Mineral Show 'LITHORAMA' held in November at the 'BARN' in Livermore.

The society also has a booth at the San Leandro Library's 'Read a Book Fair' where 500 Grab Bags are given to the participants.

 




 

Every year the Lithophiles present a scholarship to a Geology Student from California State University, East Bay. This scholarship is in the form of a 'Brunton' Transit which the students use in their Field Geology Class.

 


For many years the society has had an educational and information booth at 'Science Odyssey' the Livermore Schools Science Fair.

 


Members of the Lithophiles give presentations on
Rocks and Minerals and Fossils to local school children, scout groups and home-schooled children. This project has given more than 1100 students a chance to see and enjoy Fossils and Minerals each year.
