Welcome to the Mineralogical Society of NSW

The projected Kids with Cancer sale has been moved to November to give members more notice to find specimens to donate. Members are invited to look through their collections and select specimens to donate for the sale. All proceeds will be sent to the Kids with Cancer foundation. Members are asked to advise in advance of the sale what specimens they will donate so that a list can be circulated to members although more specimens could be brought in on the evening. Specimens should be provided with the name, location if known, and the donor’s sale price.
