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.
