Santa Rosa Mineral And Gem Society, INC
Northern California's Rockhound Hangout
The Santa Rosa Mineral and Gem Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, located in Sonoma County, CA. and formed for the purpose of increasing the knowledge and
understanding of science as it pertains to the study of minerals, gems, and fossils. We study geology, mineralogy, archeology, paleontology,
and all the lapidary arts. We encourage the interest of our Junior Members, and reach out to the community throughout the year to share our
interest and knowledge.
To further answer the call of the community we have expanded our website to provide more resources, and to attract people of all ages to the study

2018 has been amazing for Rockhounding! January started off with unusually warm weather which allowed us to take advantage of Winter explorations and longer scouting time. Several members
made it to Tucson for the big show and came back with LOTS of stories and some beautiful treasures. For those who were unable to travel to Arizona, our last field trip was a nice drive south to visit the Vallejo
Gem & Mineral Society annual Show to support our fellow Society as well as get a "show fix".
The shop has been busy with lots of new faces and some beautiful pieces being made. If you're nervous about cutting or wanting to learn to make a lovely cabachon, don't be! In addition to the Shop Orientation class, a
shop attendant is present at all times and available to answer questions and give instructions on how to use the equipment. PLUS, several members are more than happy to offer tips and share their wealth of knowlege.
