The Mineralogical Society of Victoria was established in March 1976 with the aim of fostering an interest in Mineralogy.

 Meetings are a mixture of weeknight evenings in the city (see below) and monthly gatherings on weekends for groups interested in micro-minerals and also larger (macro) minerals.

Evening meetings for 2021 will be held at the South Melbourne Community Centre, 1 Ferrars Place, South Melbourne, or in the Melbourne CBD at the historic Royal Society of Victoria's rooms, 8 LaTrobe Street, Melbourne. (Please see the Forward Diary for meeting venues.)

Meetings commence at 8:00 pm and usually finish around 10:00 pm after a light supper. 

Visitors are most welcome to attend.
