Next Meetup

The Central Maryland Rock and Mineral Collectors Exchange Monthly Meetup
Our next meeting will start at 7pm Meeting address: 6425 Abel St Elkridge MD[masked] Our meetings are always free. Our meetings are informal and we tend to discuss whatever anyone has brought with them to show as well as discussing local rockhounding ideas. Even though we usually plan to wrap-up around 9pm, most of us are usually still chatting at 10. It is amazing the amount of knowledge that we share with each other and the body of knowledge that we have as a group. All of our meetings have been great (even when only a few show up). I do ask that you RSVP for our meeting, but... if you haven’t RSVP'd and would still like to come to the meeting – please do. The RSVP helps the meeting by showing others that we do have a group and that there will be a meeting that night. If you RSVP’d yes and can’t make it, that’s OK too (you can always change your RSVP at any time). I hope that you will consider attending (newbie or old-hand). Our group has been meeting for over 3 years now. We have over 150 total members and we’ve maintained a 5 star rating for our meetings. I believe that you will enjoy yourself and we will enjoy your company too. As always, everyone is invited to our meetings (including your non-Rockhound guests). I have videos from Cash and Treasures shows that cover some great rockhounding locations and I will bring out some of my "treasures". I hope you can make it, we are very informal, don't forget to bring someting (rocks, fossils, yard rock, book, map, whatever) to discuss.

What we're about

This is a Meetup for Rockhounds, Rock & Mineral Collectors, Rock & Gem Artisans and Fossil Collectors to get together to discuss; Rock, Mineral, and Fossil Collecting Sites, Field Trips, Rock, Mineral, Fossil and handmade jewelry buying/selling/exchanges, and similar topics.

There are many Mineral and Rock Clubs/Societies in our area but there are no clubs dedicated to buying, selling and exchanging (we also do field trips and have discussion Meetups). If you are a Rock, Mineral or Fossil Newbie, you'll love this group. If you are a Rock, Mineral, Fossil enthusiast, please come and share your knowledge.


We'd like to see them.


Let's go get some.

Don't forget to check out our Photos page.

Our Meetup meetings are very informal. We have a great group of people with very varied interest. Some are newbies and some posses a vast knowledge base. We learn from each other. Our Meetup location has some equipment for cutting and polishing rocks as well as a stereoscope and mineral books. During the longer days of May-July we start our meetings outside amid a garden of semi-precious and ornate rocks.

Please check the calendar often - we post field trips there.

I hope to see you at one of our upcoming Meetups.
