Reply To: Rainbow Lattice Sunstone

The lattice sunstone came from a small mining lease in the remote Harts Range area in the Northern Territory.(approx. 200km north from Alice Springs) The lease was commercially worked out in the 1980’s. Only an area of approx. 30m x 30m produced this stone. At our recent trip we were able to noodle some good specimens. The Harts Range is a fantastic fossicking location with gem quality Zircon, Apatite, Garnet, Feldspar – including sunstone and rainbow lattice, Aquamarine, Amethyst, Sphene, Iolite, Epidote and heaps more. This area is very rugged and isolated and any fossicking trips need to be well planned and prepared.
