Welcome to the Kern County Mineral Society!
KCMS is a non-profit organization that was founded in 1935 and is dedicated to the preservation and exhibition of gems, minerals and fossils. Emphasis is placed on the sharing of knowledge and experience.
There is a vast store of knowledge, experience and information among our members, all willing to share their expertise in all phases of earth sciences, be it geology, mineralogy, paleontology, or in specimen preparation, the art of lapidary, including faceting, cutting, shaping and polishing all manner of material.
The family orientation and fellowship are enhanced by frequent guided field trips to many locations throughout California and neighboring states. A wide variety of collectable material is ordinarily found. Other society functions include furnishing guest speakers for civic and fraternal organizations, basic earth science demonstrations, and secondary schools throughout Kern County.
