Welcome Rock Lovers! Rocks Rule!

The Rock Hobby Club of Greater Saint Louis formed in 1960 and was incorporated as a nonprofit organization in the State of Missouri in 1973 as a educational and social group of dealers of Earth Science Hobby Materials. The club sponsors an annual show in March each year.

As an organization we seek to acquire and disseminate knowledge of the earth sciences, rocks, minerals, fossils and lapidary.

Summer is here! 

Wow! We can really tell that it is June in St. Louis. The heat is on! Of course across the whole center of the country it has been steamy. Even though it is hot, many folks set out on trips to favorite rock hounding sites. 

Here is a site that has info for various locations.
