Additional Info:

The Miami Mineralogical and Lapidary Guild was formed here in South Florida in 1954 and had been an affiliate of and co-located with the Museum of Science at the old Vizcaya site.

Our mission and purpose are to promote interest and education in the various sciences and arts of Geology, Mineralogy, Gemology, Lapidary Crafts, and other related subjects, and to sponsor and provide means of coordinating the work and efforts of all interested persons and groups.

We formally incorporated and received 501 (c) (3) status in 1972.
