It could look like an egg
or have concentric circles inside
or there may be a cavity inside like a geode
you just don't know until you cut it
but it's up to you to chose which way you want to go
oh and sorry I should have said welcome to the A.L.F.
at the start of this thread
regards Harry

Yes leave it the way it is if you like but if you want it cut
I would offer to cut it for you but my slab saw needs repair
and it wont be up and running till after the new year
have to get a new pulley made for it
did ask A.S. if they had any in stock but didn't get an answer
so if you can wait till after the new year I'll cut it for you Mishmish
I live in Toongabbie
Cheers mate

There's a volcanic dyke of basalt in the Albion park area being quarried for construction
but most of that area is Sydney Sandstone with ironstone through it

Yes I did
some of my finds I just stumbled over
I have a lot of geodes from Mt Hay I picked these up in 75 saphs too from the boot ,
greens stone from N.Z. in 82 , as well as panned for gold on the Shotover River.
I was in the out back at Sandstone 5 years ago and picked up some banded jasper near a place called six mile mine
I also found a reef of tigers iron (a young formation) but I believe undiscovered
there wasn't any sign of mining on the reef also it was in my 20A
so I picked up a few samples that had broken away from the reef
and were just lying around on the ground
it will be interesting to see how they polish up.
thanks for the welcome
Oh P.S. I'm a prospector using a Minelab 5000 if you wondered how I found the reef

G'day all
I'm new to this forum so I'll start by saying that
my names Harry I live in a suburb called Toongabbie in Sydney
I've been prospecting/fossicking since 1968 and will be for some time to come
I've been looking in New Zealand and in most of the states here in Australia except N.T.
Also I'm going to try my hand at lapidary and polish my many samples
Nice to be on this forum
thanks and regards Harry
