Gem, Lapidary, and Mineral Society of Montgomery County MD., Inc.

A non-profit organization

 
 

Who Are We?

Organized in 1963, The Gem, Lapidary, and Mineral Society of Montgomery County Md., Inc. is now Incorporated as a 501-C-3 non-profit educational organization. Our purpose is to increase knowledge and popular interest in earth sciences, geology, mineralogy, paleontology (fossils), lapidary arts, and related subjects. Members represent a broad cross section of adults, juniors and families with all levels of expertise. Sharing this common interest, they enjoy the fun of collecting, studying, identifying, displaying, cutting, polishing, faceting, and sharing.

You need not have a degree in Earth Science or Geology! Current membership is about 141 adults and 17 juniors. We are affiliated with the Eastern Federation of Mineralogical and Lapidary Societies, Inc. and the American Federation of Mineralogical Societies, Inc.

Our meetings typically have a few minutes of business and announcements, followed by a guest speaker. After a short break, we catch up on any remaining announcements followed by our members' show and tell table, and door prize drawings. We also have active junior programs (see meeting times below) for 9 to 16 year olds.

We adhere to the American Federation of Mineralogical Society Code of Ethics.

Our Mission

To increase knowledge and popular interest in earth sciences, geology, mineralogy, paleontology (Fossils), lapidary arts, and related subjects.
