Sequoia Gem and Mineral Society (SGMS)


The Sequoia Gem and Mineral Society (SGMS) was organized in 1963 to serve the community by providing education in the Earth sciences and training in the lapidary arts. We promote ethical, sound resource stewardship and good fellowship. We fulfill our mission through year-round offerings of field trips, lapidary workshops, classes, outreach presentations, public mineral displays, monthly informational meetings open to the public, plus our celebrated annual show, the Harvest of Gems and Minerals.
