Show-Me Rockhounds is a non-profit organization affiliated with the Association of Earth Science Clubs of Greater Kansas City, Inc., and the Midwest Federation of Mineralogical Societies. Our purpose is to further the study and awareness of the earth sciences amongst our membership and the public. Monthly club meetings are held on the third Saturday of every month (except December) usually at 11:00 am in various places*. We’d love to see you at our next meeting! Anyone is welcome at a meeting, it is not necessary to join.

*Due to how large the club has grown lately, we have been meeting in different places so watch the newsletter or next meeting space on this web page to find where the meeting place will be and for any change to the meeting times.

  1. I like how you hold meetings on a Saturday morning! By doing that, I would assume you are able to have more children attend? Also having the meetings held in the library does open the membership to the public. Well done!


  2. Is there a meeting for Jan.2019 or Feb 2019 your last post shows a Nov 2018 meeting. We are in Cameron Mo. but would love to join you as there is no rock club out here.


    1. The next monthly meeting will be Feb. 16th. at the Irene H. Ruiz branch of the KC Public Library 2017 W Pennway, Kansas City,, MO 64108 We meet on the third Saturday of each month at 11:00 am. The March meeting may be at a different location.


  3. Can you have Dan and Connie Snow contact me because I got a request from KU about their fluorescent.


  4. I have a piece of petrified wood that I would like to get two sides polished. The sides are about 3.5 inches by 4.5 inches. Any suggestions on where I can get that done?


  5. Hello – I’m looking for a local KC resource that can cut a few agates and sapphires for a fee. Any suggestions?


  6. Found a small petrified log that is burned on one end in Jefferson County Kansas in our stream bed.
    How could i find out more information about species age…etc.


  7. Hi. We found what appears to be a snake skin with soft tissue in sedimentary rock. Left it there. Can send a video but from looking quickly at the internet it appears to be rare.


  8. Hello! My parents have a very very large (couple hundred pounds) stone from a gemologist who has now passed. We are looking for a lapidary with the tools to cut the stone into fourths. I’m having a hard time finding someone from where I live (Iowa) and the stone is in Shawnee, KS. Is anyone able/willing to provide this service or have a recommendation? I’m a rock lover myself, so it’s very important to me we do this right. Thank you!


  9. HI, my daughter and I are interested in your club, are you still meeting? when/where is the next meeting? Is there anyone to chat with?


  10. Hi, I’m trying to find someone to polish the turquoise stone of an old ring I have. Do you know of anyone who would do that?
