All proceeds from the sale of these items will be donated to the Bushfire Emergency Wildlife Fund at the Healesville Sanctuary in Victoria, Australia. I lived in Australia for three years as a child and have good memories of visits to this wildlife sanctuary. It seems appropriate to feature specimens of crocoite, a bright red mineral from Tasmania, Australia, and fire opal. The photo of me was taken back when it was deemed okay to cuddle a koala. If you would like more information about the fund or to donate directly, please visit www.zoo.org.au/fire-fund/
I am so appreciative of the response! Thank you! So far I have sent in just over $305 US, about AU$395!
