Welcome to the

Gem and Mineral Society

Special Thank You to all the Searchers who volunteered their time to put on the Show April 27 and 28! It was spectacular this year due to your creative and generous efforts. 

Welcome new members!


Established in 1958, The Searchers is an educational organization that focuses on the exploration of rockhounding, lapidary arts, and jewelry making. Our organization hosts monthly meetings, conducts field trips during the cooler months, and boasts a well-equipped lapidary workshop. Additionally, our annual rock show is considered one of the best in California. The Slab, a monthly newsletter, is also published by our organization. 

The Searchers extend a warm invitation to individuals interested in joining our group. You can experience firsthand what the organization is all about by attending a meeting or field trip.
