Mineral & Geology Education

The Sacramento Mineral Society (SMS) is a public benefit educational non-profit organization located in Sacramento, CA which was organized in 1936 and is dedicated to increasing interest and knowledge of gemology, mineralogy, geology, and other geologic sciences, as well as lapidary arts.

To this end, we host a variety of activities. Our monthly educational meetings, which are free and open to the public, feature presentations and demonstrations from a variety of artists, experts, professors, and scientists. Our Junior Rockhound meetings & educational programs enable kids to enjoy hands-on learning and earn AFMS Rockhound badges. Those that earn enough badges eventually become an official "AFMS Rockstar"! Several of our Junior Members have earned national recognition and have been featured in Rock & Gem Magazine.

We also organize field trips throughout the year in order to collect specimens, study geology, and learn about minerals as they occur in nature and we also organize museum visits & tours. Our club house / lapidary shop is run completely by member volunteers and it provides the Sacramento community a resource by offering classes and practice in lapidary techniques, and has a geology & gemology library, and mineral displays.

We offer geological scholarships each year for students of local colleges and we provide free rocks to various organizations for educational purposes.

Members volunteer their time throughout the year for community service-related events, at gem shows, state fairs, schools, museums, and other venues.
