Welcome to the Nevada County Gem and Mineral Society Website!


We have an active and fun for the Kids Juniors Program, called “Pebble Pups”. We meet at 5:30 p.m. before the General Meeting. More information under “Junior Program”.

Junior Program


The high point of the year is the Annual Gem and Mineral show!

October 6-7, 2018 at the Nevada County Fairgrounds. 

Club members will demonstrate rock carving, wire-wrapping, gold panning and more. A “kid’s corner”, handled by our Junior members, will feature games, grab bags and contests with prizes created by these young collectors. A revolving silent auction happens all weekend, as well as half-hourly raffle drawings for prizes donated by vendors and club members from their private collections. Late Sunday afternoon there is a separate raffle drawing for numerous prizes.
