Our History                 Next Meeting                  Newsletters

The Huntsville Gem and Mineral Society (HGMS) is a non-profit educational organization for people interested in mineralogy, geology, paleontology, lapidary arts and related fields.  Our primary purpose is to educate our members and the general public in these areas.  We accomplish this by presenting programs, shows and lectures (to school children and organizations); hosting field trips; and exchanging rocks, minerals and fossils.

We have regular monthly meetings, and special annual events, such as a Fundraising Auction, a Picnic and Rock Swap, a Gem, Jewelry, and Mineral Show (the largest in North Alabama), and a Christmas dinner meeting.  Plus, HGMS members have access to a state-of-the-art lapidary shop and to jewelry crafting activities, such as wire working and metalsmithing.

Guests and Visitors Always Welcome!
