Welcome to Des Moines Lapidary Society (DMLS)

The Des Moines Lapidary Society (DMLS) was formed in 1955. The mission of DMLS is to promote, enjoy, and develop the study and practices of the lapidary arts.   We are proud to be one of the very few such organizations in the United States to own the building where we have meetings and a full lapidary workshop.  

The lapidary workshop has a full range of lapidary equipment including trim saws, rock saws, grinders, and cab machines.   Members of the club are welcome to use the equipment after they have been trained to use it safely.
