About Our Club

Logo 150x150The Charlotte Gem & Mineral Club
is a member of the Southeast Federation of Mineralogical Societies (link below) and an affiliate member of the American Federation of Mineralogical Societies (link below) .  The purpose of this Club is to foster interest in, and promote knowledge of , minerals, gems, fossils, and all earth sciences.

We also disseminate information and instruction in the lapidary arts and the utilization of precious metals in our crafts. These purposes are accomplished through regular meetings with informative programs, study groups, workshops and field trips. Our greatest asset is the knowledge of our members and their willingness to share with others.  We subscribe to the basic philosophy of the William Holland School of Lapidary Arts, “Learn one, Teach one”.
