The Huntsville Gem and Mineral Society (HGMS) is a non-profit educational organization for people  interested in the Earth sciences.  Our goal is to create and stimulate the study of gems, minerals, fossils, and geology, plus lapidary arts and related fields.  Membership is open to all who enjoy these areas and who wish to attend.

Membership dues are $20.00 for individuals and $25.00 for a family for a year.  (A family is two adults and all children under age 19 in one household, plus grandchildren whose parents are not members.)  Dues are payable/renewable by January 1st of each year.  New members who join at the October Fall Show are paid through the entire next year.
