Estimated to be 120 million years old, two of the world’s largest known crystals have a new home at the Crystal Castle in Byron’s hinterland. Both are 5.5 metres and are a smoky quartz geode and an amethyst geode cave. Manager Naren King says it’s the result of a ‘monumental deal with a Uruguayan farmer and long-term friend of the Castle.’ Pictured are Molly-Rose and Roxy.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online.
