Great Basin Gem & Mineral Club Home

Mission: As a non-profit organization, Great Basin Gem and Mineral Club intends to educate and stimulate interest in the earth sciences, geology, mineralogy, paleontology, archaeology and the lapidary arts.

Purpose: The club was organized exclusively for charitable, scientific, educational and recreational purposes; to increase knowledge about minerals and other geologic materials; to encourage mineral study; to promote collecting and fashioning as a hobby– this includes all phases of rock collecting, stone cutting, lapidary, jewelry arts, demonstration and showcasing such materials as may be used for educational, social, cultural or scientific enlightenment. Our intent is to promote camaraderie and understanding among members and other interested parties.

Fun: Our members appreciate informative speakers, silent auctions, door prizes and friendship with others who are like-minded at our monthly meetings. Members also enjoy field trips to various collecting sites, as well as seasonal socials that promote camaraderie among members and other interested parties.

Monthly Meetings: The General Meetings are held on the last Monday of the month at 7:00 P.M. at Capital Christian Center, 1600 Snyder Avenue, Carson City, Nevada.
