To encourage mineralogical study by amateur and professional alike and, in so doing, discover, document and preserve the Earth’s and in particular Western Australia’s natural history
Welcome to the Mineralogical Society of Western Australia (MinSocWA). We are a not-for-profit organization that caters to all mineral enthusiasts and anyone keen to learn more about minerals.
MinSocWA has over 70 members from WA and beyond. It promotes mineral knowledge and research via monthly talks and activities, regular Newsletters and field trips. It supports the Australian Journal of Mineralogy, and its members are currently working on a project to expand Simpson’s Minerals of Western Australia. Our second Perth Gem and Mineral Show (PGMS) was held on 14–16 October 2022 at the Curtin Stadium – it was a huge success!
MinSocWa’s gatherings aim to attract like-minded mineral enthusiasts in a relaxed and friendly environment, where information is shared, opportunities to learn and debate are presented, and mineral specimens can be viewed and/or traded. Members are encouraged to take active part in the activities of the Society and, in so doing, contributing to the advancement of its objectives.
Join MinSocWA to share your passion and knowledge of minerals with like-minded people, learn more about the mineral world and take part in mineral collecting outings.
