The Geological Curators Group (GCG) is a membership organisation founded in 1974, and a charity registered in England and Wales (no. 296050). We are affiliated to the Geological Society of London (the oldest national geological society in the world) and recognised by Arts Council England as a Subject Specialist Network (SSN). We also have a Memorandum of Understanding with the Natural Sciences Collections Association SSN (NatSCA) and the Society for the Preservation of Natural History Collections (SPNHC). Our vision: Geological collections thriving for science and society. 

Geological collections (rocks, minerals and fossils) are vital Earth heritage that help us understand the natural world. The Geological Curators Group strives to connect every geological collection with appropriate resources, knowledge and skills to thrive and positively impact science and society.

We do this by:

  • Supporting everyone working with and caring for geological collections of all types
  • Advocating the value of expertise in the care and use of geological collections, and their importance for scientific research and education
  • Connecting people, skills, information, and collections
