Photograph how-to set for Rock & Gem Show

The Clallam County Gem & Mineral Association annual Rock, Gem & Jewelry Show is adding another dimension to its show this weekend – photographing micro-minerals.

The free show is slated for 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, Setp. 7, and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 8, at the Vern Burton Center, 308 E. Fourth St., Port Angeles

For those photography hounds interested in photographing Mother Nature’s beautiful creations, Bruce Kelley will have a presentation at 1 p.m Saturday on the collecting and photographing of micro-minerals, “The World of Micro-Minerals.” He will show how to photograph mineral specimens using a stacking demonstration with a grand finale “wow” slide show and accompanying stories regarding the specimens.

Kelley is a retired software engineer, a classical musician with the Port Angeles Symphony and a member of the Pacific Northwest Friends of Mineralogy.

There will be the regular knowledgeable rock vendors with large world-wide collections of rocks, slabs, minerals, crystals, polished cabochons and other items.

Free rocks will be given to all kids (young and old); and, Rock Alley has been expanded to include more games and more chances to win that special prize.

Clallam County Gem & Mineral Club members will be preparing display boxes exhibiting specimen rocks, jewelry and other things lapidary.

The Port Angeles unit of the Boys & Girls Club of the Olympic Peninsula will again provide food for show attendees.

Right: Pieces of Civil War veteran Moore Waldron’s headstone can be seen in the right-hand corner of this photograph. Historical preservationist Mick Hersey, left, and the Taylor family of Gig Harbor returned the pieces to the Pioneer Memorial Park of Sequim for their friends the Englands (Moore’s descendants). The Englands read in the Sequim Gazette about the Sequim Garden Club’s preservation efforts at the park and decided to return these pieces for restoration. Moore now will have two markers in the park, as the Veteran’s Administration commissioned a new stone for Waldron in 2017 — an article about which can also be found on the Sequim Gazettte’s website. Moore moved to Sequim with his family in 1905 and died in 1908. Moore had five children and has descendants in Sequim and Pierce County as well as other places. Moore’s great-grandson is the founder of the Waldron Endoscopy Center in Tacoma, according to Cheryl England. Sequim Gazette photo by Emily Matthiessen
