The purpose of the Pinal Gem & Mineral Society is to promote popular interest and education in Earth Science, and related fields (Geology, Mineralogy, Paleontology, and Lapidary arts). To foster a fellowship among individuals interested in Earth Science and enable our members to better identify materials we collect and how to display or further process these materials. To teach all generations about rocks, minerals, fossils and what can be done with them and be collaborative in community of groups with similar interests to our Society.
The Society is led by Dr. Ray Grant. Ray Grant has a Ph.D. in geology and has retired after teaching geology at Mesa Community College in Mesa, Arizona for 31 years. He is author of the Checklist of Arizona Minerals, is co-author of the Mineralogy of Arizona, and has published articles on Arizona minerals.
