Founded to Serve

Southeast Federation
of Mineralogical Societies, Inc.

The Southeast Federation of Mineralogical Societies, Inc. was organized in 1976 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 Southeastern part of the United States. The Southeast Federation includes approximately 80+ clubs and societies mostly in the region east of the Mississippi River and South of a line following the northern boarders of Tennessee and North Carolina. **There are a few clubs outside of this area due to historical affiliation. The Southeast Federation is a member of the American Federation of Mineralogical Societies.

The Southeast Federation of Mineralogical Societies, Inc. offers an optional Liability Insurance Program to its member clubs covering field trips, shows, club meetings , etc. and educational opportunities that constitute the real backbone of our federation.  The SFMS sponsors Gem, Jewelry and Mineral workshops each year. These are held at  Wildacres, near Little Switzerland in North Carolina, and at the William Holland Retreat near the small town of Young Harris in northeast Georgia.  A broad range of courses related to the lapidary arts are taught by qualified instructors from throughout the Federation.  All instructors are volunteers who are not paid for the highly skilled and professional experience that they bring to the workshops.
