Trip Talk / Re: Xmas with the fam ne nsw.
« on: January 14, 2018, 11:27:11 PM »
Hi guys. We ended up going to torringron. Foud a nice topaz crystal and 3 emeralds. Lots of quarts and flurite. One of the young fellas found a nice amathest crystal in the camping area. I think this area is not known for amathest so im guessing it was dropped or planted. Was the only one found..
All in all a good haul great week camping and a beautiful spot.

Hi i am interested in the gemmaster and large saw let me know how u go with Dave, thanks

Hi Cliff and Mrsydney, thanks for the welcome and merry xmas and new yr to you both. About 14km before stanthorpe there is a servo at glen aplin,, if you take the road oppixite the servo and follow it rou d to the left, then just over the bridge turn right befor the school, follow that road untill u reach the dump. On the right just after the dump is a track into the bush that lead down to the river,  fossic there for nice smokey and blue topaz, have pulled a few blue's from there and buckets of smokey thats clear held to light to the size of a golf ball, goto the left when u reach the river and dig in the miggle where all the rocks are to slow the water,
