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.

Lapidary Shop CLOSED Apr. 3rd (Sun)
Posted by Alyssa on Sunday, April 03, 2016 (02:55:30) (35 reads)

We are having a work day so members if you can help us come on down and help us sort rock!

5 gallon buckets and pots and milk crates needed, so bring them if you can!

We will just be doing basic sorting of the rocks into piles so we can have an easier time to do inventory so that we can document it and be able to sell it.

Please be at the shop 12pm and it will run until 5pm.

In Memoriam In Memoriam : A moment of silence in SMS for Les Clark
Posted by Alyssa on Friday, February 12, 2016 (08:15:38) (103 reads)

We were told at last night's Educational Meeting that a former long time member of SMS, Les Clark, had passed away suddenly.

Several former members attended the meeting to let us know he had passed away and to remember him and his contributions and we all took a moment together to pay him respect and send his family our thoughts and prayers.

We appreciate Bob Willis letting us know and contacting his friends to come by the club to pay their respects and let us newer folks know what a great member Les had been for such a long time.

Our deepest condolences go to all who knew and loved him, especially his family in this time of grief.
