Art at Council November 26 - Port Moody Centennial Stone
Posted Date: November 27, 2013

Centennial Stone

To recognize Port Moody’s Centennial, Geoff Cameron, Port Moody resident, long time member of the Port Moody Rock & Gem Club, and master faceter has cut a special stone.

Featuring a custom design of 100 facets – one representing each year of Port Moody’s existence – the gemstone was cut from a flawless quartz crystal found over 50 years ago at Four Brothers Mountain, near Hope, BC. The quartz crystal has its own unique connection to Port Moody – it was found by Les and Marg Flanagan, Port Moody residents for 50+ years and long time members of the Port Moody Rock & Gem Club.

On Tuesday, November 26th Andrew Danneffel of the Port Moody Rock & Gem Club, artist Geoff Cameron, and Marg Flanagan gifted the City of Port Moody with the Port Moody Centennial Stone.
