Welcome to Our Website!

The Huntsville Gem and Mineral Society (HGMS) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) educational organization for people interested in the Earth sciences – gemology, mineralogy, geology, paleontology, lapidary arts and related fields.  Our primary purpose is to educate our members and the general public in these areas.  We offer interesting programs at our regular monthly meetings; exchange rocks, minerals, and fossils; provide presentations to local school children and organizations; and host field trips.

We also have an Annual Fundraising Auction, an Annual Picnic and Rock Swap, an Annual Gem, Jewelry, and Mineral Show (the largest in North Alabama), and an Annual Christmas Dinner.  Plus, HGMS members have access to a state-of-the-art lapidary shop, jewelry crafting activities (wire working and metalsmithing), and our Pebble Pups youth program. 

The Huntsville Gem and Mineral Society is a member of the Southeast Federation of Mineralogical Societies which is a member of the American Federation of Mineralogical Societies.
