Micromount Section

A Special GMS Group
for People Interested in Micromounting

"Come and explore the micro world with us!"

Micromount Section Meets
Fourth Wednesday
Every Month

Many of the most well-formed and beautiful crystals must be viewed with the aid of magnification. Furthermore, many mineral species only form in microscopic crystals. The process of preparing a specimen for viewing and viewing and photographing micro-mineral specimens is a distinct area of mineral collecting called "micromounting".

Join us each month as we explore different aspects of the micromounting hobby: making micromounts, magnifiers and microscopes, photographing micro-minerals, and identifying micro-minerals. Our monthly meetings alternate between workshops to discuss micromounting techniques and talks by leading micromount collectors sharing information about their favorite micro-mineral site.
