Gday everyone my name is Chris Imlach I'm a 17 year old I've lived in tassie my whole life last year me and my parents went on a trip around Australia and that's where my passion for prospecting started I only managed to gather afew pebbles and pieces last year on the trip when I got back to tassie I found some nice quartz crystals clusters from Scamander if you go around the cornor from the big hotel the cornor before the bridge that gose along the river past the tenis court's and the old bridge pretty much straight across road from the old bridge towards and the picnic area there is a small cliff almost looks like a small quarry very noticeable at the top of that cliff on the left side there is quartz crystal clusters on the rock chipped out afew nice clusters but there is still more for someone else to enjoy biggest crystals are only about an inch long very clear and they do make nice specimens on the shelf anyhow now me and my parents and elder brother are living in boyne island Centrel Queensland coast for a while in the to months I have been here I have joined the Gladstone gem and mineral club I have a cabbing machine and a great mate I go fossicking with I have found loads of amethyst crystals clear and smoky quartz crystals I have petrified I've found plenty of agate also abit of citrine I've been given moonstone labradorite tiger eye tiger iron and other minerals to cab with my machine and for when I start learning faceting I'll post up some photos shortly
