"Maireener shells" et "Diamants de Killiecrankie" à Flinders Island
 
17 novembre 2017
 
 

The Maireener Shell, Phasianotrochus Irisodontes, found only in the Southern seas of Australia and used by Aboriginal women for thousands of years, it is great cultural significance. Traditionally the shell was used as ornament, with strings broken apart in mourning. They were also used in trade for flint and ochres. The tradition of stringing shells continues in Tasmania today, with necklaces represented in most major museums and public galleries. They are valuable heritage items. See Lola Greenos work at Ian Potter Museum, Museum of Tasmania and the Powerhouse Sydney.

The Maireener shell is only found in limited locations, of the twelve recorded locations in Victoria three are to be found in the proposed dredge areas.

Phasianotrochus is a herbivore and grazer. They feed and live on the seagrasses Amphibolus and Posidonia. They are found at the low tide mark to a depth of five metres. At breeding time in summer they cover themselves in soft corals and migrate to deeper water to a depth of ten metres where they lay their eggs, which float for one or two days before anchoring themselves. They then migrate back in April. When they are found, they are found in abundance. They are an important source of food for Parrot fish and they live for one year.

Flindres - Killiecrankie diamonds (topaz)
 
The tides and weather influence fossicking time at Diamond Gully as there is about a 3 metre tidal range. A pleasant 2.5 kilometre walk along the beach at Killiekrankie Bay gets you to Diamond Gully. Then you start looking between rocks, under rocks, digging holes in the sand. Apart from topaz, when digging you will also find many sea critters, various starfish, many different species of small crabs, small fish, shells and worms etc http://www.flindersislandfossickingtours.com.au/flindersisland.htm

Necklace-making is the most significant cultural tradition of Tasmanian Aboriginal women. The knowledge and skills of shell processing and stringing has been passed down through generations of women, particularly the women of the Furneaux Islands, off Tasmania’s north-east coast. Necklace-making is an opportunity for women of all ages to get together. https://www.facebook.com/VisitFlindersIsland/
