Maine Mineral & Gem Museum’s Mineralogical Heritage Awards celebrate the sciences and arts integral to its mission: to communicate the significance of minerals in our lives, our planet and beyond. Honorees demonstrate advanced application and significant influence on the science and processes inherent in mining, collecting, crafting, educating and communicating the relevance of minerals.
MMGM Mineralogical Heritage Awards commence each May during the MMGM Mineralogical Heritage Awards Banquet and held in conjunction with the New England Mineral Conference.
The awards will be bestowed each year hereafter. Inductees are selected by democratic voting by the Awards Committee and recipients may be named posthumously.
