NEW! 2022 Show Information now posted

Welcome to the Aiken Gem, Mineral and Fossil Society

The purpose of our club  is to:

  • stimulate interest in the collection of gem, fossil and mineral materials;
  • to impart knowledge of lapidary work, mineralogy, collecting and classification of minerals;
  • and the application in the art so greater pleasure may be derived from these activities.
For more information, please take a look at our brochure. A great deal of information is also published in our award-winning monthly newsletter, the Hounds Howl - click here to view previous issues.
