The Mississippi Gem and Mineral Society (MGMS) was established to promote knowledge and the enjoyment of activities related to the earth sciences. MGMS activities focus on rocks, minerals, fossils, lapidary arts, and jewelry making.

It’s amazing how diverse this rock hobby is. There’s something for every interest and its a hobby that the entire family can enjoy together.

Visitors are always welcome to join us at one of our regular meetings held at our MGMS Lapidary School. We’re located just a few miles south of the capitol city of Jackson at 176 Tazan Avenue, Florence, Mississippi.
