Welcome to the Berks Mineralogical Society
Our goal is to share of love of geology and to share this and teach the public.
The Berks Mineralogical Society is the rock, gem, fossil, mineral and lapidary club for Berks County Pennsylvania. We conduct monthly meetings in the Auditorium Room at the Reading Public Museum. We are a non-profit educational organization for people just interested in rocks and gems, and our field trips include many areas throughout PA, some of which give us special permission to be there.
Rocks & Minerals Information
Reference books are just as important in a rock, mineral, or fossil hobby as the rock specimens themselves. They offer insight on the history of the locations we often find rocks and gems at, as well as other specimens found in the area. The Berks Mineralogical Society uses these guides for researching locations and identifying rocks, mineral, etc found in PA. If the club is to visit a site mentioned in the books, the club makes sure that it has proper permission to visit that site.
Check out our page of information on rocks, minerals, and good reference books.
