All Here is another thread that might bring some interesting
How many Orchid members belong to a hobby or amatuer level Gem and
Mineral Society, lapidary club, rock and mineral group, or other
non-professional level association?
Of course, the next question will be how many belong to a
professional organization or association but would like to keep the
two questions separate if possible.
I’ll start by divulging that I belong to two Gem and Mineral clubs.
I’m Vice President of The Florida Gold Coast Gem and Mineral Society
in Dania Beach, FL where we currently have 80 members. I am also a
past officer and life-time member of the Patuxent Lapidary Guild of
MD with somewhere around 50 members I believe.
