Please call ahead before driving out to the shop!

Attention Everyone!

Due to currently only having two stewards available to open, the SMS shop
might not be open as regularly - PLEASE call ahead (916-662-5819) before
driving out there or check the SMS Facebook page
or the Calendar here on this site.

We will be working on training more stewards to alleviate this issue but
that will take at least a month or two before we have everyone trained
and settled into some coherent schedule.

Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as we work
on getting everything stabilized!

Welcome!

The Sacramento Mineral Society (SMS) was organized in 1936 to promote the study of mineralogy, lapidary arts and crafts as well as other geologic sciences.

To this end we conduct a variety of activities such as educational presentations in our monthly meetings, field trips, a club house / lapidary shop run by our members.

Our Annual Gem, Mineral & Jewelry Show attracts vendors from all over the western United States.

We also award geological scholarships each year to individuals from local colleges.

In Memoriam In Memoriam : A moment of silence in SMS for Royalee Pierce-Cannon
Posted by Admin1 on Friday, September 02, 2016 (16:36:44) (67 reads)

Brian has reported that his mother Royalee passed away last night ...

Brian J Cannon: It is with a Heavy Heart I say to you my Friends of the SMS that My Mother Royalee Pierce-Cannon Passed away Sept.1 @ 11:30 PM .... to go Rockhound in the next life ... please think of her
(https://www.facebook.com/SacMineralSociety/posts/1096553033731794)


We at SMS all send our deepest condolences and prayers to Brian and his family at this time. Royalee WILL be DEEPLY missed by all of us that knew her.

She was EXTREMELY important to the club and is one of the main reasons why this club still exists. Her unflagging support and spirit and love for rocks made her be one of our most pivotal board members and she was amazing being the membership chair and handling the kids area for our show ... not only do I grieve for the personal loss of her but I grieve for the loss of such a wonderful and important member of our club.

She always asked what she could do for the club and not what the club could do for her. Always one of the first folks to step up and offer to help and do what needed to be done. She looked for solutions and worked to be a part of them as opposed to just nitpicking and browbeating, she stepped up and offered to be a part of the change in a tangible, physical way.

She loved the club and the people in it. She was one of the hearts that was a major cornerstone in rebuilding this club from the ground up. Her loss is massive and the ripples will be felt for years to come.

My heart goes to all of her family and friends during this time of profound loss and know that I and the SMS club are grieving deeply right along with you.

If there is anything that we can do, please let us know.

~Alyssa

Events News & Events : June 9th Educational Meeting: Show & Tell and Rock Identification
Posted by Alyssa on Thursday, June 09, 2016 (20:25:41) (158 reads)

This month members will be bringing in a special rock from their collection to show us all and then tell us a little about it! Then Mike Honodel has offered to help members identify rocks that they might not know what they are, so if you have a rock you have questions about, tonight is a good night to bring it in!

This is a potluck as usual followed by the Monthly Challenge (any cabochon that you made that has purple in it) - the live rockhound auction and more!

This is a great night to come to the clubhouse and see what the club is like if you are thinking about joining SMS and if you like it, you can join right there! Hope to see everyone there! :)
