Moonstone

Found at Moonstone hill in Queensland,  Moonstone Hill is a general  permission fossicking area on the Kennedy Development road about 150 kilometres north of Hughenden.

It is easy to obtain with specimens lying about, shallow digging is all that is required. after the wet season thick grass covers the area, camping is allowed with National parks permit. there are no facilities. There is a sign at a wire panel gate on the right hand side if travelling north, the track goes in about one kilometre and is quite rough in places. (Visited 2015 & 2016 & 2018) Photos added 2018
