Welcome!

The California Federation of Mineralogical Societies (CFMS) was organized in 1936 to bring about a closer association of Clubs and Societies devoted to the study of Earth Sciences and the practice of Lapidary Arts and Crafts in the Western part of the United States.

CFMS is an umbrella organization for gem, mineral and lapidary societies, as well as prospecting and treasure hunting clubs in California, Nevada and one club in Arizona.  Its region also covers Hawaii. 

CFMS is one of seven regional federations belonging to the American Federation of Mineralogical Societies (AFMS).
