Due to rising concerns about the spread of the COVID-19 Virus and mounting city and private closures, the Huntsville Gem and Mineral Society has decided to postpone our March 21st fundraiser auction.  The auction will be held at a later date, yet to be determined.

Please check back here for more information as it becomes available.

Meanwhile, check out the catalog, watch for updates and new items, and be ready to shop!



This year’s auction date is TBD.   The venue is the Jaycee Community Building, 2180 Airport Road SW, Huntsville, Alabama.  The preview starts at 9:00am, and the auction starts promptly at 10:00am.  Admission and parking are free.  Map to Jaycee Building.

The auction will be conducted by professional auctioneers and friendly HGMS member volunteers in a comfortable environment.  The “Buy It Now” table will be back by popular demand!  Food will be available.  You’re welcome to bring a lawn chair to relax outside, weather permitted.

This annual event helps us to manage our operating costs and to support our activities such as the lapidary shop and the Pebble Pups. HGMS members, guests and the public are invited to bid on a wide variety of items. This year we’ll have rough stones, slabs, specimens, finished stones, jewelry making materials, finished jewelry pieces, lapidary equipment, and carvings.

Here’s a sampling of auction items:

Attention HGMS Members:  Drop offs at the senior center are temporarily cancelled while the center is closed.  Please check back here for more information, and watch for the updated auction flyer.
