Our Mission: The Baton Rouge Gem & Mineral Society began in 1964 with 22 members. Its mission is to promote the interest in rocks, minerals, fossils and gemstones to foster a greater appreciation for earth sciences and lapidary arts. Society activities enable the sharing of expertise in collecting and identifying rocks and minerals, as well as working with gemstones to produce pieces for jewelry or other polished stone products.

The Baton Rouge Gem & Mineral Society is organized to promote interest in the various earth sciences, in particular those areas dealing with the science of gems, minerals and fossils, the art of cutting and polishing gemstones, metal crafts, jewelry arts, and all related fields. The club is a not for profit organization established for charitable and educational purposes.

The Baton Rouge Gem & Mineral Society is a member of the "South Central Federation of Mineral Societies" and affiliated with the
"American Federation of Mineralogical Societies" .

The Baton Rouge Gem & Mineral Society did publishe a monthly newsletter, The Redstick Rockhound News. Recent issues of The Redstick Rockhound News are available from this website. We are currently looking for a new editor for the news letter and will start publishing it again soon we hope.
