Your treasure hunt with Ethical Crystals starts at a local cafe before convoying to the chosen fossicking location. Izzy, your local passionate gemstone educator and Lapidary artist, will review the types of gemstones in the area, why they formed there, and what you are hoping to find.
As you wander along creeks or through the bushland, Izzy will describe how the area formed millions of years ago and geological information of the region’s history. She will teach safe fossicking practices and guide you to find gemstones safely, responsibly, and entirely on you own. Fossicking with you, Izzy will assist you to find some beautiful gemstones, and help you identify them and learn their mineralogy.
The gemstones you find are yours to keep, however, you are encouraged to take only what you connect to. At the end of the tour you are welcome to remain onsite to continue fossicking or exploring the area. You may want to bring a picnic and enjoy the forest – or go for a walk to discover the giant Eucalypt cave!
