Welcome to the Mineralogical Society of NSW
The Society, founded in 1975, promotes the appreciation and learning of mineral science and mineral collecting. Members include fossickers, mineral collectors, professional mineralogists and geologists.

Hopefully by next year pandemic restrictions should have been cancelled and all Meetings can be held ‘live’ at the Parramatta and Holroyd Lapidary Club although it is hoped to also provide a virtual connection for the benefit of members living outside Sydney who are unable to get to meetings.
The Society does not hold General Meetings in January and the first Meeting in 2022 will be on February the 4th. Subsequently meetings will be held on the first Friday of each month through the year unless that is before a long weekend when the Meeting would be held on the second Friday.
A full program of lectures with some ‘mini-talks’ is being arranged for the entire year and the Meeting on May the 6th will be the Annual Members Mineral Auction. The programs and speakers on the following list are not entirely confirmed, additions and alterations may be made in due course.
- February 4th: There will be a talk by Dieter Mylius on ‘The Most Stunning mine in the World’.
- March 4th: Program not confirmed.
- April 1st: There may be a lecture to be given by Dioni Cendon on ‘Collecting in Spain’
