Welcome to the homepage of the Monongahela Rockhounds. We are a mineral, fossil, and lapidary club in the Pittsburgh area.

We are part of the Eastern Federation of Mineralogical and Lapidary Societies (EFMLS) which is part of the American Federation of Mineralogical Societies (AFMS).

We have also now signed up for the Future Rockhounds of America program, created by the AFMS to provide activities for young rockhounds. For more information about the FRA program, see the kids page.

Our members receive the Monongahela Rockhound News, the montly newsletter. Click here for a two-page sample.
