Welcome!! :)

The Sacramento Mineral Society (SMS) is a lapidary club located in Sacramento, CA which was organized in 1936 dedicated to increasing interest and knowledge of mineralogy, lapidary arts and crafts, and a variety of jewelry arts as well as other geologic sciences.

To this end we conduct a variety of activities such as educational presentations in our monthly meetings, promoting and organizing field trips (to collect specimens, study geology, as well as learn about minerals as they occur in nature), a club house / lapidary shop run by our members. We provide the Sacramento community a resource by offering on-going education and practice in lapidary techniques and the related arts.

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.

Members volunteer their time throughout the year for community service-related events, gem shows, and other activities.

News & Announcements July 13th Educational Meeting: The Rocks of Scotland
Posted by Alyssa on Wednesday, July 12, 2017 (06:10:01) (32 reads)

This month David and Toni will be doing a presentation "The Rocks of Scotland and the Scottish Mineral and Lapidary Club" which centers around their recent trip to Scotland and Iceland and about their visit with our sister rock club, the Scottish lapidary club. We gave them rocks from California and they reciprocated in kind! I'm sure it will be a fascinating and interesting presentation!

There is a potluck as usual followed by the Monthly Challenge (anything that you made that resembles fireworks or anything that you made that has red, white, and blue!) - the live rockhound auction and more!

This is a great night to come 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! :)
