Mission Statement

WHO WE ARE--CLUB MISSION The Houston Gem and Mineral Society is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to study in the areas of earth science and related fields and arts. A major focus of the HGMS is education. Through classes offered at the clubhouse and through our scholarship fund, the HGMS encourages its individuals and groups to better their knowledge and understanding in these areas. The society is open to all persons with rockhound or fossil "fever." We offer something for every family member, from junior members to senior citizens, and our activities encourage family participation. The HGMS is a member of the Southeast Federation of Mineral Societies (SCFMS) and is affiliated with the American Federation of Mineralogical Societies (AFMS). (The SCFMS, AFMS and ALAA logos can be seen on the home page, and clicking on them links you to their Web sites.)

Description

The Houston Gem & Mineral Society not only has eight Special Interest Sections (Paleo, Mineral, Lapidary, Faceting, Day Light, Beading, Archaeology, and Youth) meetings on a monthly basis, it also holds a monthly General Meeting during which Club business is conducted. All members are encouraged to attend. The General Meeting is held at the clubhouse on the fourth Tuesday of each month (except December) at 7:30, and much effort goes into the selection of great programs. The clubhouse is located at 10805 Brooklet, Houston, Texas 77099. Visitors are encouraged, and they are welcome at all of our meetings. You'll be glad you came!

A friendly group of people who are happy to share their knowledge and time with children and adults. They have assembled a large collection of specimens and equipment, and encourage others to learn more about gems and minerals.
