AOS Meetings

The AOS monthly club meetings are normally held every fourth Wednesday at 7:00 pm.  Guests are always welcome.

Meetings are held at the Garden Grove Masonic Lodge, located at 11270 Acacia Pkwy, Garden Grove, CA 92840. 

For directions, click on this Google Maps link.

Typical meetings start with a social half hour, then a business session, followed by a coffee/social break, and then our evening's speaker.   Some of our recent topics have included:

  • Opal Mining in Coober Pedy
  • Gem carving
  • Gold casting
  • Intarsia

Once a year we hold a Annual Opal and Gem Show where dealers from around the world sell opal rough, finished stones, jewelry, gems, and supplies.  In addition, a number of symposia are held.

The Society maintains an extensive library of books, some of which are one of a kind, videotapes of speakers such as opal expert Len Kram, and  misc. newsletters and journals.  These are available for loan to members at each meeting.

It has character. The rolex replica one for me, like others comments below. A railroad minute track runs the periphery of the dial, with a well proportioned minute hand reaching all the way to said track and the hour hand sitting comfortably just inside the hour markers. The moon face itself is made of platinum like most aspects of this replica watches and the indicator also displays the age of the moon in 6 day intervals. This is a rather unusual feature and provides a measurement of exactly how many replica watches sale the moon has progressed. The rolex replica uk of the disc is adorned with applied stars, presumably also in platinum although rolex watches havent specified as such. Speaking of the strap, the hublot replica is hand stitched using a combination of silk and platinum thread, and is secured with a half Maltese cross shaped folding replica watches sale in 950 platinum.
