I'm a crystal collector and I'd love to get my hands on some local "gems". Any recommendations for any old quarries, mines, caverns etc would be most welcome. I'm not a caver, so only places a mere mortal (with a fear of falling down holes šŸ˜‚) can get to please. Nothing that involves extremely tight spaces either! Cheers

Um, those of us who go caving and exploring like to see the "gems" where they are. People chipping them out of the rock often damaging them in the process so they can either sell them or selfishly keep them just for them selves are spoiling it for the rest of us and are understandably not popular. There is no problem with people picking up the odd lump of spar from an old waste rock heap or the bottom of a quarry but not many collectors leave it at that.
