Kitsap Mineral and Gem Society Welcomes You

Meet Great People

Kitsap Mineral and Gem Society

The Kitsap Mineral and Gem Society was founded in 1939.  A long-standing community of artists and "rockhounds" have been gathering together to share in the joy and the adventure that comes along with collecting gems and minerals.  We love exploring the outdoors, which often includes digging in the dirt!  Once we've found these treasures, then we shape our finds into beautiful art pieces.  For over 80 years, our club has been a part of the community.  Our annual Fall Festival of Gems is well known in the area and gathers thousands together.  Join us for one of our monthly meetings, learn about field trips and collecting sites, watch demonstrations from experts, and simply enjoy the community that embodies rock collecting.  Email us at the contact link above or find us on Facebook.  Go to our "Pay Dues or Donate" tab for our membership application and payment.
