My inlaws live there so I've spent a lot of time looking.  Only ever found lots of good jasper and I'm guess what is technically petrified wood.  There are lots of quartz veins through the rock in places - but it's fairly poor quality milky quartz and I've never seen anything vaguely like a quartz point.

I do know there is an insect fossil bed not too far away at Belmont (google it) but doesn't seem to be a spot you can actually search for them as such.

I'll be curious if anyone else can shed more light on anything interesting.

I have some petrified wood from that area, go for a walk along the old coal mine tracks and walk along quarry beach. I have some petrified wood at home from there if you want some?

There's petrified wood nearby at Swansea Heads. Some large pieces embedded in bedrock
