Hey all I Glen new to the forum. i somtimes take my dog and kid for a walk well we went out the back where people take their 4wd and started finding bits of what i think are Petrified Wood Quarts and Amber.
i cant upload pics yet but as i post more i will.
i find it quite a relaxing part time and if im right i would like to learn more and find some more different types.

im a bit of a noob at this.

there would be petrified wood and quartz but no amber in that area.  To learn more you might consider joining the Illawarra Lapidary club in Wollongong  :)
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days attack me at once.

I'll have to take a pic could be plastic or glass but didn't feel like it.

Not sure of the area, but could it be a clear coloured quartz, maybe citrine or smoky quartz.
Common sense isn't exactly common
