Rock & Gem has been the leading magazine for the lapidary and mineral hobbyist. Not a trade journal and not a scientific dissertation, it speaks to the average rockhound, providing just the right blend of entertainment and satisfying information. Armchair hobbyists and diehard diggers alike will find something to enjoy in each issue.
Lifetime hobbyist and Carnegie Award winner Bob Jones heads up a group of experienced and knowledgeable contributors. Bob’s light-hearted style brings readability to in-depth articles on minerals, classic deposits, and collecting trends. His Frugal Collector series helps collectors learn to identify mineral bargains, and his affiliation with the Tucson Gem & Mineral Society provides a behind-the-scenes look at the year’s biggest and best mineral show and sneak previews of the show’s theme and featured exhibits.

R&GM is a gem
Love love love it!
Everything is just like the magazine, but better in so many ways. Very informative and easy to manage. Thank you!!!
article view no longer available on latest Edition!
The latest edition of rock and Gem no longer has Article View. It only has the old photocopied version. Hopefully I am missing something. This problem persisted a few months ago and now the last six issues work with no problem. But with this latest September issue we’re back. Too bad. It made this a fun way to consume published media.
The best! Just like paper magazine but without all the clutter from saving each issue. Great info on rocks, gems and minerals.
