Stamford Mineralogical Society


Non-Profit Organizations

About Us

The SMS was founded in 1954 as an educational organization by people interested in the earth sciences, including mineralogy, geology, paleontology as well as the lapidary arts. The society is operated by amateurs interested in these fields. Our meetings, which usually feature guest speakers, are open to the public. We also have periodic field trips to collect mineral specimens, and we sponsor a yearly show that features mineral dealers from across the northeastern U.S.


Meetings: 7:30 PM, usually on the second or third Tuesday of the month, see website for calendar and program.

We meet at the Eastern Greenwich Civic Center, 90 Harding Rd, Old Greenwich CT
