For sale is a botryoidal agate from Agate Creek, Qld. Its hard to really put this specimen into words, except that it really grows on you. The color is an uncommon blue/grey. This very recently collect piece, has paler areas under the tops of some of the bubbles that appear to move when the specimen is moved, giving it some life. A unique display piece, that I have grown quite fond of.

While this isnt Australian, we usually put our New Zealand material in to the Australian section, because there is so little of it, and we would like to separate it from the rest of the world, material. This specimen weight a whopping 238gms and has fine lime green fluorescence. The second pics show the clarity of the material, apart from a small amount of skin on the outside it has excellent clarity. Collectors of amber shouldnt be without a piece of this great N. Z. Kauri fossilised resin. This is especially fine material! Old material. Ex Brian Hutchinson collection.

For sale is a Kuridalla amethyst. Except for one small ding on the front this piece is in excellent condition, it has good luster and a nice saturated color. I must note what appears golden in the pic is actually more of a brown color in reality. This piecew is interesting as there is a small area of smoky quartz accompanying the amethyst, a little uncommon for the locale. Nice specimen with good form.

For sale is an excellent amethyst specimen from Wave Hill, N.T. First I have to say I think this specimen is way way better in person, except for about the thickness of one finger across 80% of the bottom, (where the brownish color is), this piece is fully terminated and in pristine condition. This really cant be seen in the pics, it just wouldn't work. The specimen has good color saturation (including some smoky highlights), great luster, and excellent style or form. This is a great Australian amethyst. It has a sawn base.
