CLEAR LAKE GEM & MINERAL SOCIETY, INC.
CLGMS, PO BOX 891533, Houston, TX, 77289
MEMBER: American Federation of Mineralogical Societies & South Central Federation of Mineral Societies.
HISTORY: Founded in 1974 in the Clear Lake area.
To promote education and popular interest in the various earth sciences; in particular in those hobbies dealing with the art of lapidaries and the science of minerals, fossils and their associated fields.
The CLGMS is an active part of the Clear Lake City and Greater Houston Community. Besides our monthly meetings at which special programs on the Earth Sciences are presented, there are many activities that involve CLGMS members. We maintain an active role in helping the community by supplying books and periodicals that deal with Earth Science related matter to local libraries and schools. On request, members will give lectures and talks on Geology, Mineralogy, Faceting, Cabochon making and other related material. We also have periodic workshops where various rockhounding skills are demonstrated. Always active, the club takes periodic field trips to collecting sites for rocks, minerals, and fossils. The CLGMS also helps our young people by awarding two $1,000 scholarships each year to worthy college students working in the field of Mineral Sciences.
Come by and see us - We love to have visitors.
