Ask a "Silly" Question / wash
« on: May 24, 2015, 02:16:34 PM »
Hi there,


I've had a lot of people tell me to look in the 'wash' when looking for Sapphires, usually I just smile and nod so I don't look like an idiot, which still leaves me confused and hence why I am still as yet to find any.


Could someone please describe to me what is this 'wash' people keep telling me about? they always tell me to look for the Zircons, which other than being black, I have no idea how to identify.


Sorry, I know this is a terrible question.

Hi

I'm new to the forum and kind of new to fossicking.

Recently a Geologist friend of mine told me that there were sapphires at Carrington Falls, Jamberoo Mountain.

I was bored one morning so my mum and I went to check it out, armed with random makeshift tools we spent hours trying to find sapphires, we came home with so many rocks, some of which I think may be the real deal.

The thing is though, now I'm hanging to go out and do it again and soon.

I was hoping that you guys may be able to suggest some good places around Wollongong and the South Coast where I may be able to find some pretty rocks.
