Franklin Gem & Mineral Museum

Macon County has been dubbed the Gem Capital of the World and for good reason.    (?)
The hills and mountains around here are riddled with all kinds of gem stones from quartz to garnets to rubies and many more in between all leading to the cache of gem mines in the area. This large source of gems and minerals led to a collection of rock hounds in the area whom in turn began the Franklin Gem and Mineral Society.
