Throughout the year we are involved in an expanding set of events to highlight the worlds of mineralogy and geology.

Geoscience Portal

A wealth of state-by-state information – not just geology, but meteorology, oceanography, and astronomy as well! Things to learn, see, watch, do, visit, etc.

A group of like-minded mineral miners, collectors, enthusiasts and scientists have collaborated to form the New England Mineral Association (NEMA) in order to reach out to everyone in New England (and beyond) who is interested in the mineralogy found in this area of the country. Our goal is to bring everyone together, to share information and knowledge and to learn from each other in the process.
Whether a beginner or a professional, everyone is welcome!
