The Ozarks Gem & Mineral Society, Inc was founded in 1957 as a non-profit organization dedicated to giving rockhounds in the Ozarks a place to gather and learn. The purpose of the Society is to study and promote an interest in earth science, geology, paleontology, and mineralogy; study lapidary and jewelry-making art; conduct education; support youth activities; and encourage interest in earth science.


We meet on the 4th Monday of each month (except December) at 6:30 pm at the Prince of Peace Lutheran Church. The church is at 815 E. Farm Road 182, Springfield, Missouri. Park in the lot at the back of the church and enter on the lower level. Meetings are open to the public and usually consist of a presentation, a short social break, and a club business session.
