Gday Jason , I have quite a few gem/mineral spots south of Brisbane. Mt tambourine have thunder eggs which are great fun cracking and worth $$. I have some other spots south of the tweed for cool stuff. Let me know if you need the info. Gold down that way too Goodluck
@ reg couple of days walk ..... wont be doing that
diggerdude ... That info would be great Didnt know thunder eggs were worth $$$ ... I found one there ages ago, cut it in half, my half probably weighs close to 15kg looks good sitting in the garden - Anyway what sort of "cool stuff" are we talking. My son really wants a sapphire for his mum but i would be happy with a range of crystals, gems etc to scrounge around for
Hi Jasonr, I know you are keen for gems in Qld so why not have a look around Stanthorpe for Topaz, or if your son is keen for Sapphires head a bit further south into Glen Inness or inverell ( 4.5 hrs from Brissy) as there are some beautiful stones that come out of that area. Also there are a few places down there that will gladly cut your stone as well. I hope you have heaps of fun and find a few decent cutters.
