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 offeirng 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 News & Events : New Location for the SMS Educational Meetings!!
Posted by Alyssa on Saturday, December 31, 2016 (19:59:28) (22 reads)

Starting in January 2017, the SMS Educational meetings that are held on the second Thursday of every month will no longer be held at the SMS clubhouse, but at a new location!

Our clubhouse is nice, but because it is in an industrial warehouse, it lacks any sort of insulation and there is no way to warm the interior in the frigid, icy cold winter evenings and no way to cool during the blazing, fiery hot summer evenings.

One of our members, Bobbie Littlefield, found a wonderful place that we can use to hold our meetings and even do classes that will cost us nothing and meet all of our needs!

So starting in January 2017, our monthly educational meetings will be held at the following location:

Sacramento County Cooperative Building
4145 Branch Center Rd.
Sacramento, CA 95827
