PostPosted: Sep 30, 2022 08:57    Post subject: Quartz hunt @ Capurru Quarry, Osilo, Sardinia  

Some days ago a friend of mine went on vacation to northern Sardinia and she asked me if I have an idea where to go for a rockhounding trip. I suggested to visit Capurru Quarry near Osilo to look for some quartzes ... and it seems as if this was a good idea! Here are some impressions of Nadine's trips to Capurru during the last days:
