Hi Rod, just found your post here and thought I'd get in touch. I'm a mineral collector and fossicker based in Brisbane and have quite a bit of knowledge about Quartz and minerals. Although these are very black, they still would be classed as Smoky Quartz. Do you still have any of these or are you looking to sell any of them? Their value would depend on any damage and clarity. I'd be very interested to chat more with you about these. Feel free to email me on: [email protected]

Hey Rod, these look great, we will be in Stanthorpe after easter to do some fossicking & were wondering if it would be possible to be able to have a look at these smokey's. Be good to meet you & have a chat. Kind Regards...Steve & Melinda..Brisbane [email protected] or 0411601166

Hi Rod, Im interested in viewing any of these you may have for sale. Please let me know if you are selling them, they are very intersting pieces. Im in Brisbane and i dont mind travelling, I was thinking of doing some fossicking out your way soon anyway so if you are keen on selling them please let me know. Cheers, Abbi.
