Geology examines our natural world, studying problems that range in scale from a single mineral grain to the entire solar system.
Studying this complex natural system is an intrinsically interdisciplinary endeavor, so geology draws upon the tools of mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, geography, and environmental science. Geologists are flexible and well-rounded scientists, tackling such varied topics as earthquakes, climate change, the formation of continents and oceans, resource development, and the origins of life. Geology majors at Oxy have the opportunity to explore geology on campus and in the unparalleled natural laboratory of southern California.

Thousands of lapidary, jewelry and mineral items from around the world.

Rock Currier, owner/proprietor of Jewel Tunnel Imports, http://jeweltunnel.com has again agreed to open his immense Baldwin Park warehouse to Gem & Mineral Council members and their guest for a very special open house. What makes this warehouse so special is its content - an amazing variety and quantity of rocks, minerals, lapidary, jewelry - all at true wholesale prices ( Jewel Tunnel Imports does not sell to the public).
Refreshments will be served throughtout the day to keep you going as you search Rock's seemingly endeless shelves full of rare and common treasures. Whatever you're looking for, you won't be disappointed.
Rock, a stalwart supporter of the council since its inception, wants this to be a fund-raising event for the council. Consequently, for the privilege of buying wholesale, you will be asked to make a tax-deductible donation amounting to 25% of the purchase price. That means that you will still be paying nearly 40% less than retail. (Sales tax will be charged unless you can provide a resale number. ) Please plan to write two checks, one for your purchase and one for your donation to the Gem & Mineral Council.
There is no admission charge for this event. Family and friends are welcome, but Rock asks that any children be closely supervised. There will be more than enough rocks and minerals for everyone, but plan on coming early to give yourself plenty of time to go through Rock's vast stock.
