Sunday fossicking
« on: July 14, 2013, 02:20:08 PM »
Just back from a local field trip to Penguin for some jasper and Calder for agate, successful if not soaking wet trip for all that attended, weather here is abysmal, but at least it's not freezing!

I've done some picking along the beach at Penguin, its a nice place and found some decent pieces of jasper, hoping to get bakc down there one of these days to grab some more for the tumbler.

Where abouts is Calder, is the agate there any good

Rock On....

I find wet weather great for specking. It wets down all the stones so you can see the colour/patterns better (albeit you may get wet). Glad you got some nice finds.
Baaa humbug, not enough fossicking time!

Couldn't agree more Jamo, that was todays silver lining, the agates were easy to find.

Gemhunter, Calder is out the back of Wynyard (inland).  The agate is primarily shades of grey (50?) with the occasional red/brown banding for a bit of interest.  Will try and get some pics up but am over the big island for a few days tomorrow so there may be a delay.
