About Us

What we are: We are a group of people with a variety of common interests revolving around earth sciences. Our ages range from young children to senior citizens. Our expertise ranges from scientists to citizens and students of many fields. Lapidary work, faceting, mineral collecting, mining, and fossils are just some of the earth sciences we are interested in.

What we do: We seek to further our knowledge of the various earth science related fields through a guest speaker program, the exchange of information between club members, and hands on experiences such as field trips and junior club activities.

Affiliations: The Albuquerque Gem & Mineral Club falls under the umbrella of the Rocky Mountain Federation of Mineralogical Societies, which falls under the umbrella of the American Federation of Mineralogical Societies.

We look forward to getting to know you and welcome you along on our learning adventure. We're here because we are interested and like to share our discoveries and excitement.
