In 1964 twenty two people
gathered together and formed The Baton Rouge Gem & Mineral
Society. Many people have come and gone since then but
the club still remains active. This year marks our 50th
year as a club. What should we do to celebrate? We are
hosting The SCFMS Convention during our Annual Gem Show

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 publishes a monthly newsletter, The Redstick Rockhound News. Recent issues of The Redstick Rockhound News are available from the internet.
