Show off your Gems / Aster gems cutting

I thought Id show off some of the sample pieces I sent to Aster gems too show you what kind of job they do,Im fairly happy with them If I was going to complain about anything It would only be that some of the girdles werent quite even and I got back two garnets which arent in the picture that are rejects which I will adress with them.For the price and the cut designs I think it was pretty good for around $300 to cut them all and all postage and customs costs.Stones that are pictured  are;2 Clonncury garnets,! harts range garnet ,harts range zircon,Harts range green and yellow beryl,Prehnite from wave hill ,iolite from mt isa and Kuridala amethst.The largest in the pic stone is 12 carats.The pic is in my media folder as it wont work here

The next day John and myself decided to go up to Flannagans to see if my previous years hole had been dug as I got some nice ones out of there,on arrivall we noticed it had so we scratched down the side of the hill and found a few small agate and scraps left by others. In the media file is a pic of my old hole and the scraps I found.

After returning from a week at agate creek ,Ill share some of the trip.
Having a good run from mt isa, I left at 5 am and arrived at 3.30 dogging the pigs and  on the way, plenty of them around 50km from Normanton.On arrival my Friend John from the sunny coast was already set up and we had an early night ready for a big day at black soil creek area the next morning.Day 1 we headed up to the fridge for a look around ,it took a while to find any shallow stone as the area has been dug well but eventally I found a patch that was good and we were on to a few. Below is a pic of the robertson river which you cross about 14km from the fossicking area{for those who havent been}
