TUCSON GEM AND MINERAL SOCIETY
Our Purpose is to encourage interest and study in geology, mineralogy, lapidary, and allied earth sciences. The Tucson Gem and Mineral Society, Inc. is a non-profit organization, founded in 1946 by a small group interested in the hobbies of mineral collecting and lapidary. In 1988 we were awarded the 1st Carnegie Mineralogical Award for creating a venue to promote, inform, and educate the mineral community.
ACTIVITIES
Society activities include the general meetings, field trips, potlucks, the annual Tucson Gem and Mineral Show®, a Christmas party, educational classes, and Micromount classes. All these activities are open to Society members who are in good standing with the Society at the regular meeting immediately preceding the activity.
MEMBERSHIP
Society dues cover the fiscal year July 1 through June 30 and include subscription to our newsletter "Rock Talk", the membership roster, special Society activities, and 50% off the admission fee to the annual Tucson Gem and Mineral Show®.
COMMUNITY OUTREACH
The Tucson Gem and Mineral Society, Inc. supports the promotion of mineral knowledge in our local Tucson community through scholarships, grants, and awards. We reach out as well to the larger community of rock and gem lovers with support for publications such as Rock and Mineral Magazine, the Geoliterary Society, Mineralogy of Arizona, and the Mineralogical Record.
