The Mojave Desert Gem and Mineral Society of Barstow, California was founded in 1940. We are a nonprofit organization for people interested in collecting and learning about gems, minerals, rocks, fossils, lapidary arts and the earth sciences.

The club holds monthly meetings and sponsors a variety of special events including field trips, lapidary classes, and an annual gem and mineral show.

OBJECTIVES: The objectives of this Society are:
  • To collect and study minerals and rocks.
  • To disseminate a general knowledge of the science of mineralogy and allied subjects.
  • To provide opportunity for the exhibition and exchange of specimens.

AFFILIATES: Our Society is a member of:
  • AFMS - American Federation of Mineralogical Societies (a non-profit educational Federation of seven similar regional organizations of gem, mineral and lapidary societies).

  • CFMS - California Federation of Mineralogical Societies, Inc. (includes approximately 137 clubs and societies mostly in California).
