G\'day from Down Under.

I\’m an oldie here from Sapphire Queensland Australia. Sapphire is in the heart of The Gemfields in Queensland about 700km NW of Brisbane. I have been living here permanently with my Bride and 2 trusted canine offsiders. I have my own Sapphire mine (leased from Qld Mines Dept). The mine is 38 feet below ground and quite safe to dig in a responsible manner. I am learning to facet the stones that I happen to find and am looking forward to learning more about gemstones, cutting them, and presenting them to enhance their beauty.

Would love to see some photos of what you find. Available to help with faceting advice…
