About The Club

Join Now




The Club was founded in 1957, incorporated in 1964, and has served the gem and mineral hobbyists in Montreal ever since.

We have a workshop/clubhouse in the Montreal area, where members gather to practice their crafts, or socialize and exchange information. Safety is always the first priority in the workshop.

Every year in the fall, we host our annual gem and mineral show where the public is invited to
visit dealers from many parts of Canada, as well as other parts of the world.

The club organizes field trips during the summer months.

  A newsletter, called "Geminews", keeps our members informed about events within our club as well as those hobby related happenings outside the club. Over the years, we have received several awards for our Geminews.

From time to time, courses on various subjects are given at the workshop. Members help each other with advice on how to use the equipment. We also have a small library.

New members are always welcome.

The Club is there for your enjoyment. Aside from our hobby related events we have also a
social side. We have a spring and a fall Wine & Cheese party, an annual BBQ and a Christmas party, all to bring members together. So join in and you will find the Club a fun place to be, to meet friends and enjoy your hobby.
