2022 DMCS

We’re excited to host a small, intimate group here in Dallas, while livestreaming worldwide to friends at home!

Additionally, our annual benefit auction will be hosted on mineralauctions.com, with dozens of minerals, mineralia, and field collecting trips up for auction. Proceeds benefit the Mineralogical Record, Rocks & Minerals, mindat.org, and TGMS Exhibits Fund. If you haven’t yet, please create your account early to ensure your account is active. The benefit auction will go live in mid-August.

Tickets are available here, for $25, with proceeds benefitting some of our favorite mineral organizations.
