Rubyvale and Sapphire are rich Sapphire and Topaz mining areas in Central Queensland just west of Emerald.
We were able to go down a Sapphire mine and see how the Sapphires were located and mined.
In Sapphire we saw an interesting sculpture in front of what looked to be a private residence.
Miners are required to remove everything from the site if they vacate the lease area.
