Went for a dig in the creek over the weekend (don't worry there's plenty of unexplored creek) and found these two unusual stones. Something to tempt you.







Baaa humbug, not enough fossicking time!

The second one almost looks agatey, Jamo. Ted, I will be there before 9am so will keep my eye open for you. I'm currently in WA, stopped into Norseman today with some small results. Picked up some Cowell jade on the way over the other day as well. Heading up to the Gascoyne area next week to do some scratching.

Yes, the second one is agate. The first true agate I have seen from this location.
Glad the fossicking is going well. Looks like you are clocking up the km. Bring some of your finds for 'show & tell' when you arrive. Safe travels

You can add me to the list, in search of the other half of that agate (and that big blue topaz).
