The Amador County Gem & Mineral Society, Inc., is a non-profit organization created to study mineralogy and geology and to collect minerals. Our mission is to practice lapidary arts and promote interest and appreciation in the earth sciences and allied subjects.

Our society holds monthly meetings and has lapidary and jewelry arts workshops.

Gem & Craft Fair:
Our annual Gem and Craft Fair is held on the first weekend of May. Spend a spring weekend on the historic Kennedy Mine property visiting our Gem and Craft Fair. Our next Show will be held on May 4 and 5, 2019.

Explore fun-filled vendor spaces that offer colorful rocks, slabs, lapidary items, hand crafted jewelry, beads, woodwork, hand decorated gourds and many other handcrafted pieces.

The show is held at a very special site: the Historic Kennedy Mine in Jackson, California. One of the tallest head frames in existence today is in full view of our show. Also, there is a museum is right next door. Other historic gold mining structures and buildings remain on the property to see. The Kennedy's giant wooden Tailing Wheels  can be visited at a park just minutes away.
