Being a diamond in the rough herself, it’s no surprise Flinders is home to the beautiful Killiecrankie Diamond. Hire a sieve and shovel from Killiecrankie Enterprises in Whitemark and who knows, you could be taking home more than just rare memories.
Killiecrankie diamonds come in a wide range of colours and the ones found on Flinders Island are clear, ice blue and pink gold. In comparison with quartz they are heavier, harder, smoother and colder to touch. Topaz is the birthstone for November and the gem for the 16th wedding anniversary. Legends have it that topaz has the power to protect the wearer from illness and accidents.
