The Santa Clara Valley Gem & Mineral Society (SCVGMS) is pleased to accept donations of mineral specimens, lapidary materials, lapidary machines, tools and supplies, jewelry, books or other materials related to the gem & mineral hobby. The club recycles such donated materials to members of the hobby at sub-market prices by means of periodic yard sales conducted by the club’s Donation Receiving Committee (DRC) and attended by members of SCVGMS and other clubs, educators and other interested parties. Proceeds from these sales help to support the club, its programs, and to defray its operating expenses.

SCVGMS is an IRS 501c3 non-profit charitable organization, and the value of donations may be tax deductible. SCVGMS will provide a letter of acknowledgement for any donated material. SCVGMS cannot, however, provide appraisals for donated materials. Pick-up of donations can be arranged.

If you have an inherited mineral collection that you don’t know what to do with; lapidary rough that you never got around to cutting; equipment that has sat idle; or lapidary tools you no longer use, please contact our DRC coordinator, Michele Smith, at telephone # 408-679-0202 or e-mail

Thank you for supporting our hobby.
