Uncut topaz Dad fossicked from north Queensland. The coloured one is the size of a large pea.



I'll take them to a jeweller soon to see about cutting them.

Barn owl. I took him out to the zoovets because he seemed to have a vision problem. Tim The Vet said he was blind in one eye, which means he can't be released. Tim is talking about putting him in a captive care programme but National Parks policy says the owl has to be euthanased. I'm going to pass this on to the experts, but I hope the owl gets a paper euthanasia and goes into care. He's really fit and healthy, apart from being blind, and has taken to captivity like a champion.
