The North Jersey Mineralogical Society is a Charter member (One of the original founding clubs) of the Eastern Federation of Mineralogical and Lapidary Societies and is affiliated with the American Federation of Mineralogical Societies.

The NOJMS is a 501(c)3 Not-for-Profit educational organization. We provide educational programs to our members and the general public through our club meetings, and occasional visits to schools and other organizations and groups.

Our society started in 1945 and has been going strong ever since. In 2015, we celebrated our 70th Anniversary. A brief history of our club is shown on the lower half of this page.

Our goal is to bring together people who have a common interest in the study of earth sciences and mineral collecting in the Northern New Jersey area. Our mission is to educate our membership and others on how to preserve and document the geology and mineralogy of Northern New Jersey as well as to collect and preserve representative specimens from the area. Our club maintains an extensive LIBRARY (click for the entire list) as well as a small mineral display at the museum.

The NoJMS meets once monthly at The Paterson Museum, located at #2 Market Street, Paterson, NJ, in the Great Falls Historic District. Our meetings are open to the public and include a social hour/mineral sale, business meeting, mineral drawings and an informative and educational lecture. (see meetings page for details)

We strongly encourage our younger members to attend as the meetings are a great place to begin or add to your mineral collection and knowledge!

MEMBERSHIP has its perks!!!

NOJMS has many activities for our members throughout the year such as field trips, outings to museums and shows, club t-shirts, an annual picnic and collecting day at Sterling Hill Mine and a holiday party for members. We also publish “The Treasure Chest”, our monthly newsletter, which may be found on the “Newsletter” page. Lastly, we hold 3 shows per year to benefit the club. In the spring and fall, we host our annual all-outdoor Rock Swap-n-Sell at Sterling Hill Mining Museum in Ogdensburg, and in early spring, we sponsor our annual Indoor Rock, Gem and Mineral Show that features a wide variety of dealers, door prizes, and fee giveaways for the kids. Club members are very involved in running these shows. Revenue from these shows continues to allow our club to provide activities, picnics, and parties for our members to enjoy at no cost to them.

If you like what you see so far and would like to become a member of NOJMS, you can join us today! Membership dues are only $15 per year for a single adult, $20 for a Couple, and $30 for a family membership (2 adults and up to 3 children). Membership dues help pay for club activities, operating expenses, membership in the AFMLS and Eastern Federation, and insurance coverage for club outings. Paid members receive a membership card and club patch.

The Des Moines Lapidary Society (DMLS) was formed in 1955. The mission of DMLS is to promote, enjoy, and develop the study and practices of the lapidary arts. We are proud to be one of the very few such organizations in the United States to own the building where we have meetings and a full lapidary workshop.

Meetings are held monthly at the clubhouse from September through May on the first Saturday of the month at 7:00 p.m. A knowledgeable speaker presents some aspect of the arts and/or sciences of the identification, acquisition, and use of lapidary material; or techniques for mounting and display. Administrative meetings begin one hour prior to the regular monthly meetings.

The lapidary workshop has a full range of lapidary equipment including trim saws, rock saws, grinders, and cab machines. Members of the club are welcome to use the equipment after they have been trained to use it safely. Our workshop is open to members to work and learn most Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00p.m. A donation is requested to cover the cost of consumables such as saw blades, polishing wheels, etc.

A small metals shop is also available to members.

Classes are available for learning wire-wrapping, beginning silversmithing, advanced lapidary, working with opals, and more.
