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!
Our free museum is open Thursday - Saturday, 11am - 3pm.
