Graves Hill Gem Fields

Graves Hill Gem Fields
A few hundred kilometers west from where I live there's what we call the Gem Fields. Graves Hill is one of the areas in the Gem Fields. The Gem Fields are renowned for sapphires, beautiful sapphires of different colours - Blues, Greens, Pinks, Yellows, Golden Yellows, Oranges, Party Colours and Star sapphires. They're all found here with some digging and sieving the dirt and some lucky people have found reasonably sized stones on top of the ground as well. A couple of years ago my mother found a green sapphire over 10 carats here at Graves Hill.© Copyright Sue Kraatz

Thank you Carme. I'm always interested in other places too. I think this photo isn't all that interesting to look at; it's just an ordinary looking place but just under the surface lies treasure. I look forward to seeing all your photos too.
