A look into Goulburn THERE is an aura of enthusiasm that radiates from beneath the McDermott Centre on a Monday and Friday, when members of the Goulburn Gem Society bunker down in search of beauty.
The group cut and polish various types of stone collected during glass ray ban sunglasses fossicking trips around Australia. Not many people would look at a stone on the ground and see the splendour within. It's this, Secretary Sue O'Neil said, that makes the whole process worthwhile. "To look at a stone you wouldn't think it would be anything it's like a lucky dip, you're looking at a stone but when you cut it its completely different," she explained. "But it's something you know you've found yourself, you've learnt it yourself and the finished product is absolutely beautiful." The Goulburn Gem Society was founded in 1967 in the old Railway Institute. Founding members included Bruce Holloway, Andrew Zantis, Steve Sidwell and Graeme Gillespie. Ms O'Neil joined the club in 2005, after an ad was placed in the Post for interested members. "We used to go on holidays and pick up the odd stone here and there," she said. "When it moved I had these stones at home and didn't know what to do with them, and hubby said 'oh well if you don't find something to do with them we're going to have to throw these all away'. There was an ad in the paper for the Goulburn Gem Club so I came down and joined." It was an instant love, it seems. Ms O'Neil now joins the multitude of award winning gems from Goulburn, with the club competing in three competitions annually. "Most times we bring some medals or trophies home. There's not many times that we don't bring ray ban new wayfarer 2132 something ray ban solglas?gon home," she said.
