Great Speakers

The Contra Costa Mineral & Gem Society is considered by many the Bay Area's premier showcase of world class speakers on the earth sciences and lapidary arts. Topics are broad and varied and include geology, geophysics, photography, rock and gem properties, identification, and discovery. CCM&GS Speaker Mike Burkleo holding California 'Blue Gold' jade

Monthly meetings usually feature a speaker of notable distinction in their field. Some are experts in field collecting; some are university professors or known for their discoveries of contributions to earth science or lapidary. Some recent contributing speakers and their topics are listed below.

We meet the second Monday of the month (third in June) at the Centre Concord, 5298 Clayton Road, Concord, CA. Doors open at 6:30 pm and the program begins at 7:30 pm. Vistors are always welcome -- no charge.
