The Greater Orange River Area, Northern Cape, South Africa

The Northern Cape Province is a mineral rich area that covers several hundred kilometres. It includes the famous Kalahari Manganese Fields and well know mines like N'Chwaning, Blesberg, Riemvasmaak and Jan Coetzee. Because the Kalahari Manganese Fields is such a specialized area, we created a seperate page for it.  Follow this link to visit it:  KALAHARI MANGANESE FIELDS

Springbok is the capital town of this area and lies on a national road (N7) approx 550 km north of Cape Town.  This area is of special interest to us because of its interesting quartz specimens.

Orange River area, Northern Cape, South Africa

Steinkopf, some 50 km north of Springbok, yields beautiful smokies and phantoms.

Pella (which originated as a mission station in the 1800's) is situated a few kilometres from the Orange River (150 km NE of Springbok). It has a Coloured community, many of whom make their living from mining a wide assortment of crystals from the nearby hills, mountains and also the river banks.  The area is collectively known as the Orange River area. 

These specimens include orangy-red hematite covered quartz crystals, clear crystals with green, orange, red, black and amethyst phantoms, to mention just a few.  Lately these mentioned specimens are becoming more scarce.
