AOS Meetings


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

Meetings are held at the Garden Grove Civic Women's Club, located at 9501 Chapman Ave., Garden Grove, CA 92841 (at the North-East corner of Gilbert and Chapman). 

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.
