East Texas Gem & Mineral Society (ETGMS) is a Nonprofit 501(C)(3) organization led by a Board of Directors. ETGMS was formed by a group of people that shared a common interest, and held our first organizational meeting November 12, 1956. ETGMS was created so others that shared those same interests would have a place to gather, communicate, and learn from others in the group. Our purpose is to educate and promote the study of geology, mineralogy, gems, fossils and the lapidary arts. ETGMS is affiliated with the South Central Federation of Mineral Societies and the American Federation of Mineralogical Societies.
In January ETGMS hosts The East Texas Gem and Mineral Society - Annual Gemstone and Jewelry Show. The show is a major fund raiser for the club.
ETGMS owns the national renowned Rock Food Table.
