Congratulations to both!

Representing 100 gem and rockhound clubs statewide, the California Federation of Mineralogical Societies proudly presents its 2019 CFMS Annual Show & Convention – California’s Natural Treasures. We invite you to attend and experience…
Mountains, deserts, and the Pacific Ocean have endowed our state with uniquely rich geological resources – and a richly diverse history, with people coming from all over the world to mine, study, build, and make things of beauty. We celebrate them all.
Educational displays, activities for kids, fine jewelry, and lapidary crafts – from stone pendants in colors chosen by Mother Earth to polished spheres like planets – you’ll find rock-related fun on all sides and demonstrators to show you how it’s all done. For the whole family, we’re sharing an exciting way to enjoy Nature through the rockhounding hobby. Don’t miss the Raffle!
