We are located in Fort Wayne Indiana.  We are  a non-profit, family-oriented club.  We collect minerals, fossils, rocks and Indian artifacts.  We have members who do lapidary, gold and silversmithing, faceting, cabochons and wirewrapping.   We meet at 7-9 pm on the 4th Wednesday of the month (except December on the 3rd Wednesday and no meeting in July).

 
Our main fund-raiser is our annual October Rock and Mineral Show  & Sale at the Allen County Fairgrounds.  Our 2015 show (54th) is Oct. 16, 17, & 18.   Budget permitting, we may offer scholarships each year to students majoring in Geology.
