A brand-new treasure has been unveiled at the Crystal Castle – a rare Uruguayan Amethyst dragon egg.

After finding the largest crystals in the world in 2016,  Crystal Castle managers say they have been on a mission to fulfil every crystal lover’s dream: to sit in a crystal cave.

120-million-year old

The Castle’s Naren King said, ‘The extraordinary 120-million-year-old geode, the dragon egg, is open for all visitors to sit inside and enjoy, free with your entry.’ 

‘You can also marvel at the exquisite crystal wings of eternity, a beautiful mural space that will let you take wings and fly.’ 

Crystal Castle has extended summer hours: 9.30am–5.30pm through to January 28, 2019 and is located at 81 Monet Drive, Mullumbimby (off Coolamon Scenic Drive).
