A Special GMS Group
for People Interested in Micromounting
"Come and explore the micro world with us!"
Micromount Section Meets
Many of the most well-formed and beautiful crystals must be viewed with the aid of magnification.
The process of preparing a specimen for viewing and actually viewing specimens is a distinct area of mineral collecting called "micromounting".
Micromounters become travelers by proxy as they gaze at specimens through a microscope. They traverse alien landscapes in search of spectacular treasures. Join us on our journeys at the next Micromount Section meeting!
