The Monongahela Rockhounds are a mineral, fossil, and lapidary club in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area.
We have also now signed up for the Future Rockhounds of America program (FRA), created by the AFMS, to provide activities for young rockhounds. For more information about the FRA program, see: Kids FRA
Our members receive the Monongahela Rockhound News, the monthly newsletter:
To promote, among its members and the general public, an interest in collection of minerals, fossils, and associated items.
To promote their use in lapidary work.
To promote the study and classification of minerals, gemstones, and other items of such nature.
