The Mohave County Gemstoners (MCG) is a gem and mineral society located in Kingman, Arizona. It is a member of the Rocky Mountain Federation of Mineralogical Societies, which is a member of the American Federation of Mineralogical Societies. The MCG interests are related to geology and earth sciences.
Our Club is diverse in that we touch on all areas of rock hounding. We conduct Field Trips to explore Nature and find the stones and minerals that we can collect and take home to study or work with.
We have a Mineral Study Group that explores minerals and their origins. Viewing these specimens under a microscope, especially crystals, is amazing.
Many of our members go into the Lapidary Field; cutting, shaping and polishing to enhance the beauty of what we find. We do this by hand or by tumbling. The finished rock is then made into jewelry, art objects, or yard art.
We have speakers at our meetings that touch on many things: collecting rocks, nature, safety issues in nature, camping, the art of jewelry making, Turquoise, etc.
Recreational Mining is the act of working a location or claim for lapidary, minerals or precious metals (gold and/or silver). MCG has an active claim for honey onyx. Other members also have claims. Mining techniques, history and artifacts are other interests.
As one can see, the MCG is a highly diversified group for those interested in the earth sciences and geology.
