Our Club Purpose

The Palomar Gem and Mineral Club is open to all adults and young people, and is organized to

  • Promote the study of rocks, minerals, gems, fossils, and related subjects.

  • Develop greater knowledge and understanding through regular meetings with educational programs, field trips for the collection of specimens, and classes for teaching lapidary arts.

The Palomar Gem and Mineral Club shares its knowledge of the earth sciences by sponsoring gem and mineral shows featuring exhibits, displays, and demonstrations.

The Palomar Gem and Mineral Club was founded March 20, 1954.
