Please excuse the mess - our website is currently being revamped.

The SMS shop reopened on April 13, 2021.
Note: PLEASE call before coming to the shop to make sure we have someone opening the shop on the day you wish to come in, as we will be in a state of flux for a little bit.

Alternatively you can check on our Facebook page to see if we have reported that we will not be opening on that day for some reason.

Changes to our schedule:
We will be closed August 1st, 7th and 8th, 2021 to work on the clubhouse to prepare for our new lighting that will be going in!

Summer hours will be in effect as of May 30, 2021:

If the weather is projected to go past 100 degrees we will be closed on that day as the temperature inside the shop is several degrees higher than what the ouside temperature is.

Sundays: 10am-3pm
Tuesdays: 6pm-9pm
Saturdays: 10am-3pm

There are some stipulations:
* Maximum 10 people in the shop at one time (including stewards).
* Masks covering both nose and mouth should be worn if you have not been vaccinated.
* Social distancing should still be practiced as much as possible.

Our monthly Educational Meetings are canceled until further notice.

We are also continuing to do our monthly Second Saturday Live Feed as well as Auctions and Sales on our Facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/SMSRockSalesGroup).



You can also donate to the SMS via Paypal!

The Sacramento Mineral Society (SMS) is a lapidary club located in Sacramento, CA which was organized in 1936 dedicated to increasing interest and knowledge of mineralogy and other geologic sciences, as well as lapidary arts and crafts, and a variety of jewelry arts.

To this end we conduct a variety of activities such as educational presentations in our monthly meetings, promoting and organizing field trips (to collect specimens, study geology, as well as learn about minerals as they occur in nature), a club house / lapidary shop run by our members. We provide the Sacramento community a resource by offering on-going education and practice in lapidary techniques and the related arts.

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.

Members volunteer their time throughout the year for community service-related events, gem shows, and other activities.
