Welcome to the Nova Scotia Mineral and Gem Society.
Our membership possesses a wealth of knowledge about identifying rocks, minerals, and fossils; collecting locations throughout the province; and techniques for turning rough material into beautiful gemstones. Such knowledge is shared at our monthly meetings when members bring in specimens for identification and make presentations on topics they're most interested in.
The Society holds a regular business meeting on the last Saturday of every month (except June, July, August, and December). Meetings are held at the Nova Scotia Museum of Natural History on Summer Street in Halifax, and begin at 7:30pm. Guests are always welcome to any of our meetings. Every meeting has a mineral theme and is followed by a presentation or some other hobby related activity. Door prizes are usually specimens collected by members and donated to the Society.
