Field Trips at Emmaville

If you have not already planned your trip to Emmaville for this weekend’s Gem Show, it is not too late to arrange it.  There are some great field trips planned for the weekend so here are a few details to whet your appetite:

  • Saturday Morning (9:00am, 2nd September) – trip to the silver mine to look for silver and galena.
  • Saturday Afternoon (1:00pm, 2nd September) – trip to the emerald mine
  • Sunday (all day, 3rd September) – trip to the flourite mine to look for fluorite and Jap twin crystals.  This is an all day trip so please take your morning tea, lunch and plenty of water.
  • Monday (4th September) – trip to look for topaz, copper and tourmaline.

Cost for these trips is $10 for the full day and $5 for half day – very reasonable cost for access to some great fossicking areas with expert local guides to assist you.  As mentioned in our previous post, there will be some traders set up at the Emmaville Caravan Park over the weekend so even if you dont manage to find much yourself, there will be plenty of opportunity to pick up some bargains.

    White gold jewellery. Many people know about it many do not know. Some time people get confuse that it is real gold or silver. But truth is it is real gold. Now in 2006 it is possible to give color to gold. You want yellow gold it is natural color so nothing to do. but if you want white gold , rose gold, black gold or green gold just mix some alloy and it is ready in front of you . The alloy contains some articles and they will give color to whole gold. But if you melt your jewellery it will go and become yellow gold again.
    Right now the fashion is of 18kt white gold jewellery, 14kt white gold jewellery, 10kt white gold jewellery, 9kt white gold jewellery. In alloy there is some containing of silver. And all alloy come nickel free now. If you want to see some good white gold jewellery please visit http://www.whitegold-jewellery.com
    The white gold jewellery is also becoming popular in India. Right now people purchase and export white gold jewellery, white gold diamond jewellery, white gold ruby jewellery, white gold sapphire jewellery, white gold emerald jewellery. in Europe people like more 18kt and 14kt white gold jewellery. In USA and UK people like more 14kt and 10kt white gold jewellery. Worldwide people like these stones more such as ruby, sapphire and emerald.
    You will be surprise to know that India is one of the leading exporters of white gold jewellery to worldwide market. They produce ring, earring, pedant, necklace, bracelet and brooches. All the jewellery which is made in India specially studded white gold jewellery. You want yellow gold it is natural color so nothing to do. But if you want white gold, rose gold, black gold or green gold just mix some alloy and it is ready in front of you. The alloy contains some articles and they will give color to whole gold. But if you melt your jewellery it will go and become yellow gold again. if you want to see some good white gold jewellery please visit http://www.whitegold-jewellery.com
    And the jewellery is made in Bombay or Mumbai is made of diamonds majority. But the jewellery made in Jaipur and Delhi is made with diamonds and color stones. In color stones main gemstones are Ruby, sapphire from Thailand and emerald from worldwide location and Blue topaz, tourmaline, Quartz, and other semi precious stones. The people more like to buy Rings and earring. Right now it is a fashion of white gold chandelier style earring. Celebrity wears it and it becomes a fashion now. Also people love to buy ruby ring and sapphire ring and emerald for wedding ring and engagement ring . The second best choice is earring . some working woman prefer simple and small earring or studs or tops. But for party and evening dress wear people would like to go for long and chandelier earring . it looks so hot and suite your dress color. Like say red is your dress color and you bought a chandelier style earring in red ruby it sure give a boost to your look and shine. Same in case of your wrist to match the jewellery you will have a Italian style broad ruby bracelet and in finger a ruby ring . your accessories is complete . and It is hard to any body to not give a second look .
    Online Shopping become a part of lifestyle and fashion. And I think it is good. In few minutes you have thousand on online jewelry store of white gold jewellery and only you have to compare and send inquiry email and you get details of items. And any thing you like order it pay it and it is done. It is simple now fast and secure.
    Today in USA and Europe many store owner source their jewellery from India and the fact they are moving online and depend over it . ni past they use to make trip to buy jewellery but all become online now . they pay full attention to their store and customers. Only in weekend they contact supplier of white gold jewellery from India and email them. Communicate with them and give order. This way they save a lot of money and time and energy.

  2. Thanks for visiting my blog. I must say your blog is very well kept especially because you can categorise your posts. I use blogger but it does not allow me to make categories which means a messy history and lost posts.

    Well anyway, I have a question for you. Refer to the Flourite specimen that is photographed in the field trip to emmaville article, How big is that specimen? Do they also get purple color over there? Actually someone sold me a specimen here in melbourne, which is huge 1 foot long and half foot wide and quite thick. But the problem is he did not know where the specimen has originated from. It is very clean. And is dark purple color. The color is homogeneous, which is quite strange, I thought.

    I will put a few photos in the next month on my blog, hopefully. Well here is my blog’s link just in case someone wants to visit:
