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.

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.

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.
