Hello Boston Rockhounds!
The Boston Mineral Club (BMC) was founded in 1936 to “promote the study and collecting of rocks and minerals, to encourage friendly cooperation among mineralogists and collectors, [and] to promote the study of mineralogy and related arts and sciences coming within the purview of earth sciences…” In the pursuit of these goals, the BMC offers educational programs at club meetings, mineral collecting field trips, a newsletter, and access to our mineralogical reference library.
The Boston Mineral Club is a member of the American Federation of Mineral Societies and the Eastern Federation of Mineral and Lapidary Societies.
You do not need a college degree in earth sciences to join the club! We are open to all. We welcome and encourage new members to join the club.
