Immediate notice to all FGMS members & visitors
Pursuant to the County and CDC health recommendations, FGMS will require that everyone wear masks indoors, effective immediately. Exceptions for certain individuals unable to wear a mask will be made as before.
FGMS was founded in 1957. We are a group of individuals who share common interests in gems, minerals, jewelry, geology, paleontology and the related earth sciences and lapidary arts. The Society is based in Fallbrook, San Diego County, California -- just a "stone's throw" from some of the most productive gem mining areas in the United States.
You won't believe what we've been hiding in Fallbrook!
