The Burlington Gem and Mineral Club (BGMC) is a northern Vermont club open to anyone interested in minerals, mineral collecting, gems, fossils, and lapidary crafts. Club activities include presentations by club members and invited speakers at monthly meetings, field trips to collect minerals or fossils, and our annual gem, mineral and fossil show held each July. To promote an interest in minerals and fossils, the Club also sponsors talks at local schools.
The Burlington Gem and Mineral Club is a member of the Eastern Federation of Mineralogical and Lapidary Societies, Inc. (EFMLS) and the American Federation of Mineralogical Societies (AFMS). Federation-sponsored activities are described on their websites.
