FOSSICKING FOR QUEENSLAND AGATE
By Sir Paul Howard
Illustrated throughout with magnificent colour photos, map at the inside rear cover.
From about the 1950s, there was a rapid growth in the popularity of lapidary as a hobby in Australia. This led to a desire for many rockhounds to travel to distant places to fossick for earth's treasures.
One of these destinations was Agate Creek in remote far north Queensland. As a result, the beautiful agates from there feature in almost every collection of gems, be it large or small.
Many books have been written on fossicking, and will invariably include reference to the famous Agate Creek. However, very few deal with a single fossicking area as Sir Paul has done in 'Fossicking for Queensland Agate'. Take a fossicking trip with Sir Paul into this remote area, take the book, it will be a valuable travelling companion.
