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, and our field trips include many areas throughout PA.

There are no meetings for July and August. Meetings will resume again in September.

Rocks & Minerals Information

Reference books are just as important in rock / mineral / fossil hobby as the rock specimens themselves. They offer insight on the history of the location as well as other specimens found in the area. The Berks Mineralogical Society uses these guides for researching locations and identifying rocks, mineral, etc. 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.

Contact Berks Mineralogical Society
