We offer monthly field trips to members where you may find fossils, minerals, or even gold. As As part of the Southeast Federation of Mineral Societies we also participate in a monthly field trip sharing program called the DMC (originally the Dixie Mineral Council). Clubs in the program take turns sharing one of their field trips with other clubs in the program. This increases the number of field trips a club can offer their members, and members enjoy a variety of field trips all over the southeast.
Hematite is an iron oxide mineral. The iridescence (rainbow colors) in this specimen are caused by a thin layer
of nanoparticles or nanocrystals. This colorful piece was collected on a club field trip.
