Sapphire Fossicking
Sunday 10 August 2014


Today we had a great day out in the country when we went sapphire fossicking in Grabben Gullen with the Cubs.  We learnt all about the density of sapphire and how that affects where we look for them in the riverbed.  We had a geologist come along to teach us about fossicking and how to find gemstones, and we learnt all about the equipment needed and terminology of fossicking. 

The weather was perfect and everyone had a great time cooking jaffles on the campfire afterwards.
