After more than 600 hours of work by MMGS members to move, process, and organize the massive Josephine Scholl collection, which MMGS acquired in April 2016, the first batch of specimens is ready for sale. One hundred fifty lots have been selected for the voice auction, representing a cross-section of the wide range of material in Jo’s collection. Minerals from Maine, New England, and eastern Canada dominate the collection but localities across the United States and around the world are also represented.
The Maine Mineralogical & Geological Society is a nonprofit organization dedicated to all educational and cultural aspects of geology; mineralogy; lapidary arts and related subjects; and to the camaraderie generated by the membership's mutual interests.
