Austin Gem & Mineral Society (AGMS)
AGMS is organized within the meaning of Section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
THE HOBBY OF THE ROCKHOUND has many different aspects. We are collectors of minerals and fossils and craftsmen in many types of lapidary arts. Knowledge, skill, and areas of interest are the rock hound’s choice. Some of us are purists, who insist on doing all of our collecting and work in specialized fields; others go for variety and buy or trade for much of our collections. Some of us also enjoy showing our collections; competing with others or just showing for the pleasure it gives others or ourselves. Perhaps we can help you determine or expand your interest in rocks and the earth sciences. AGMS was formed in the mid to late 1950’s just for this reason.
The Austin Gem and Mineral Society (AGMS) is part of SCFMS (The South Central Federation of Mineral Societies). SCFMS is one of seven different regional federations in the US that are members of the AFMS (American Federation of Mineralogical Societies).
