Hi all,

Hope you are enjoying your hump day!

I am new to the lapidary community and am located on the Sunshine Coast. Does anyone know any tips on fossicking around this area? Clubs etc would be of help too....

Originally from Zimbabwe, parents were big diamond exporters before we got hunted down by the government. Managed to smuggle one back from Africa luckily enough. By far the biggest cut one I have seen. I've posted a picture for you all to see. The amethyst next to it is 53.26K for comparison.

Have a very keen interest in Sapphire, Ruby, Topaz and also Diamonds as everyone else surely would......or so i'd like to think!

But let me know the best ways to get started and stuff, maybe some videos to have a look out for and books/tools of the trade I need to get!

And as always take care and happy hunting!
Also if any of you would like to arrange a gathering of some description or a fossicking event, let me know and I will surely come along and see how it is done!

Cheers Chad

Awesome stuff mate. Good find!
Where abouts are you located on the coast?
I live in Wurtulla and would love someone to go fossicking with sometime if you are interested?  beers
I am a newbie as well so I don't know much about it.

Thanks Chad
