Welcome to the Rocky Mountain Federation of Mineralogical Societies website.

The purpose of the Rocky Mountain Federation is to have a close association of all clubs in the Society to promote the study of earth sciences, including the lapidary arts, the study of fossils and paleontology, and related crafts.
