Don't miss a fantastic opportunity to check out the Suncoast Gem & Fossicking Club!

If you think we just grind rocks then come and see the full range of fascinating activities! See a castle made from 4,366 pieces of polished stones that is a complete replica of an English castle. Watch a machine that makes bowls from pieces of rock. Indulge yourself in a FREE cup of coffee or tea with a sandwich and piece of cake or try a FREE sausage from the BBQ. Keep the kids amused at the Kid's Corner where they can do a little fossicking themselves -- two FREE goes! Buy yourself a nice piece of jewellery or a fascinating specimen from the club stall. Take a chance in the raffle to win some great prizes.

Go on a FREE guided tour with lots of information on the club's activities:
* turning rocks into pieces of art or jewellery;
* working silver to produce eye-catching jewellery;
* casting silver or gold into beautiful designs;
* faceting precious and semi-precious material into gem quality stones;
* using silver wire to "wrap" stones and create pendants, bracelets, necklaces and earrings;
* getting out into the fields and digging and/or collecting your own specimens;
* and so much more. DON'T MISS IT !!!
