The Tucson Gem and Mineral Society was founded in 1946 and began as a small group interested in the hobby of mineral collecting and lapidary. The Society's intent from the start was to further the knowledge and appreciation for a hobby that was just beginning to grow. Their mission is to encourage interest and study in geology, mineralogy, lapidary, and allied earth sciences. Through their Tucson Gem and Mineral Show®, they remain dedicated to presenting extraordinary mineral and jewelry exhibits while bringing together jewelry, mineral, fossil, lapidary craftsman, and related publication dealers to provide an unparalleled variety under one roof. A combination museum / shopping experience that for four days delights young and old.
