Fossicking Locations / Amethyst from Canungra / Beechmont QLD?
« on: March 30, 2012, 10:39:35 AM »
Hi all,

Just wondering if there is anyone here that knows more about this location or has specimens from this deposit?
From what I understand, this is an old fossicking area in the hinterland Gold Coast that became inaccessible after the land was taken up as part of an Army reserve. I've never actually seen a specimen from this spot or heard much about the quality of the crystals that were found. According to an old article in an Australian Lapidary magazine, the area produced double terminated Amethyst crystals from decomposed basalt.

Is there anyone here who's been digging there in the past or can shed a little more light on these "lost" amethyst crystals?

Thanks!

Patrick
