Please call ahead before driving out to the shop!

Attention Everyone!

Due to currently only having two stewards available to open, the SMS shop
might not be open as regularly - PLEASE call ahead (916-662-5819) before
driving out there or check the SMS Facebook page
or the Calendar here on this site.

We will be working on training more stewards to alleviate this issue but
that will take at least a month or two before we have everyone trained
and settled into some coherent schedule.

Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as we work
on getting everything stabilized!

Welcome!

The Sacramento Mineral Society (SMS) was organized in 1936 to promote the study of mineralogy, lapidary arts and crafts as well as other geologic sciences.

To this end we conduct a variety of activities such as educational presentations in our monthly meetings, field trips, a club house / lapidary shop run by our members.

Our Annual Gem, Mineral & Jewelry Show attracts vendors from all over the western United States.

We also award geological scholarships each year to individuals from local colleges.

Posted by Alyssa on Thursday, June 09, 2016 (20:25:41) (111 reads)

This month members will be bringing in a special rock from their collection to show us all and then tell us a little about it! Then Mike Honodel has offered to help members identify rocks that they might not know what they are, so if you have a rock you have questions about, tonight is a good night to bring it in!

This is a potluck as usual followed by the Monthly Challenge (any cabochon that you made that has purple in it) - the live rockhound auction and more!

This is a great night to come to the clubhouse and see what the club is like if you are thinking about joining SMS and if you like it, you can join right there! Hope to see everyone there! :)
