The Lubbock Gem and Mineral Society was formed in 1958 by a group of rock hounds that wanted to encourage the study of rocks, minerals, fossils, and other geological materials, and by meeting with others with the same interests, learn more themselves. If you are the kind of person that cannot walk thru a field without picking up a rock, this club is the right place for you. If you are a Geology student, this club is the right place for you too! The LGMS is a club for everyone; some members only collect rocks or minerals, some are accomplished Lapidary artists that cut and polish stones for jewelry, and some are silversmiths or wire wrappers that set finished stones in a setting of their own design. We also have members that come just to be with a family member that has an interest in the earth sciences. We want you to feel welcome and encourage you to get involved quickly.
