Doug Menadue :: Bespoke Gems - Precision Hand Faceted Gemstones Of The Highest Quality

2010 Season at O'Briens Creek, Mt Surprise and Bowen, North Queensland

Bespoke Gems

The Agate Creek turnoff at Forsyth... the start of 80-odd kms of bone-shaking, kombi-rattling, rough-as-guts dirt track. This was going to be a real mission!

 

Bespoke Gems

On the road in there is some truly beautiful scenery to behold. I love the country out here... its awesome!

 

Bespoke Gems

Arrived at the Agate Creek fossicking area... man, thats one rough road in but the kombi was up to it! :-)

Back home... there's my haul of agate and that was only in one day.

My treasures.

A monster aquamarine crystal found out at O'Briens Creek.
Some of the best coloured aqua I have seen comes from this area... look how dark it is!

Here's another pic of that big aqua in the sunlight.

 

Here are some pre-season pics. I'm back in Bowen for the "off-season" and I've setup base on a beach. The plan is to cut as many stones as I can but with such a beautiful setting its hard not to grab the fishing rod and try to catch that barra.
