About this book

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.

Full of practical advice, this book is a guide on how to get to Agate Creek, and it describes the best sites.
