Fossicking around Eden NSW
« on: October 02, 2013, 03:11:19 PM »
Hi all,

We spent today fossicking around the northern beaches of Wollongong for petrified wood. We ended up finding some great specimens and the kids had a great time.

As we are heading to Eden tomorrow, 3.10.13, would anyone have any tips on where I can find amethyst around Eden. I have seen reports of it being there but no locations or directions.

As I am on the ipad, photos don't seem to upload, I will add some when I get home

Thank you

most of the pebbles at north Wollongong beach are bits of petrified wood  :)
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days attack me at once.
