Eight people organized the Gem and Mineral Society of Syracuse in 1951. Since that time it has grown in membership to include adults, families, and young folk. The Society was incorporated in 1969 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

The objectives of the Society are to stimulate interest in mineralogy, paleontology, and the lapidary arts. Member interests include collecting, identification, and display of minerals, gems, fossils.  Members share and develop their artistic skills in jewelry design and creation. Call Joanne Suchon 315-440-4098 for more info.

Regular Club meetings are the 3rd Monday not July-GemWorld, August-Picnic, December-Holiday Party

Our monthly meetings provide social and educational experiences. Field trips give collectors chances to find specimens and enjoy the out of doors, exercise and time with old and new friends.
