About the Group: Our Club was formed in 1985 and is currently located in Rivervale Perth W.A. In 1990 the AFG asked our Branch to run the 1991 Annual Competition and we graciously accepted. In April 1992 the Branch was involved with the American Challenge at the Australian Gemboree held at the Swan Regional Centre. Australia won the Challenge and the Club was proud that one of our members, Jack Tuffley, was in the team. In fact he placed second to the top winning cutter. Even though our members liked to enter National and International competitions it wasn't until 1995 that the Club decided to hold its own level 1 Competition and establish a "Presidents Trophy" as an annual award to novice cutters. During the years from 1996 to the present day our club has remained unchanged and members enjoy the pleasure of Faceting as a hobby as well as learning other aspects associated with gemstones.
