KwaNdebele, Mpumalanga, South Africa - mineral specimens and crystals

KwaNdebele is an area of 1 970 km² (761 sq mi) that lies in the north-eastern side of South Africa, about 180 Km (112 mi) from Johannesburg and was zoned as a semi-independent homeland for the Ndebele people in the late 1970's. The homeland was granted self-rule in April 1981. KwaNdebele legislature expressed interest in seeking independence in May 1982 and some preparations were made, but an exceptional lack of viability in economic affairs along with land disputes prevented this from occurring. KwaNdebele was re-integrated into South Africa in April 1994. It now forms part of the Mpumalanga province.

This area is well-known for its cactus quartz that occurs in shades from clear to citrine (caused by iron oxide coating) and amethyst. The local miners did not understand the meaning of 'amethyst', so two of the main buyers asked these miners whether they had crystals for sale that had the colour of spirits (referring to methylated spirits). Subsequently the local miners then started calling these 'spirits quartz'. Not always knowing the origin of this description, eventually people started talking about 'spirit' quartz.
