SDMG's Mission

The San Diego Mineral and Gem Society exists to help people increase their understanding and appreciation of gems, minerals, fossils and the lapidary arts.  In order to fulfill that mission, the Society offers classes, field trips, lectures and special programs and events for a variety of interests.  The Society also sponsors a Scholarship Fund and operates a gem, mineral and fossil museum, which is located at the northwest corner of the Spanish Village Art Center at Balboa Park, San Diego, California.  The Museum features fine specimens collected through purchases and donations.  The SDMG Museum is open 7 days a week and is free to the public.  For more information about it, please visit the SDMG Museum page.
