FEDERATION OF SOUTH AFRICAN GEM AND MINERAL SOCIETIES
In the middle sixties, some very farsighted individuals realised the need and the benefit which could be derived from uniting all the Gem and Mineral Clubs / Societies in South Africa at the time, into a Federation.
This Federation, when founded would elect office bearers and appoint various committees who would be entrusted with the task of carrying out the wishes of the collective Clubs and Societies affiliated to the Federation.
FOSAGAMS was then duly formed in Kimberley on the 3rd September 1966. The aims and objects of FOSAGAMS are to assist in the formation of Earth Science Clubs and Societies and, to promote the hobby of lapidary art and mineral collecting and all its associated fields.
