Central Florida Mineral and Gem Society (CFMGS)
A Nonprofit 501(c)(3)

Founded in 1961 we are dedicated to sharing knowledge and the enjoyment of rocks, minerals, gemstones, lapidary arts, beading and all things related. Since the founding of CFMGS the club has changed locations but the love for rocks, minerals and handcrafted jewelry has grown.

We are located at 6100 S. Orange Avenue in Orlando, Florida 32809. Our workshop has cabbing equipment, tools and faceting machines for members. At CFMGS you’ll find classes throughout the year for learning lapidary arts–cutting and polishing cabochons, silversmithing, metal work, wire wrapping, beading and related traditional crafts.

Our volunteer instructors and experienced members assist with just about anything having to do with lapidary arts. We welcome walk-in visits for tours of the workshop on weekends. Come by and join today!
