Western Cape South Africa mineral specimens and crystals

The Western Cape, with Cape Town as its capital city, is a scenic, mountainous province with an equally beautiful coastline.

The sandstone mountains have a granite basin. Clear and milky quartz crystal pockets are found in numerous areas, with the Ceres, Worcester and Villiersdorp areas yielding the best specimens. Some of these specimens are double terminated, with clear and coloured phantoms and other inclusions.

 


 

Western Cape South Africa mineral specimens and crystals

Vredendal is an exceptional mineral locality. It is a small agricultural town, some 300 km north of Cape Town. A lime and dolomite quarry (pictured left) a few kilometers outside Vredendal, has yielded some very interesting mineral specimens.  

We have been fortunate to obtain (over several years) a large collection of these hard-to-come-by mineral specimens from this exclusive site.



Vredendal, Villiersdorp, Worcester and Ceres (the latter two both about 120 km from Cape Town) are beautiful areas. Nestled between the Cape fold mountains, these areas deliver beautiful and unusual quartz specimens.

Below we have a selection of crystals from these lesser known areas.  All the specimens on this page have been mined by ourselves.
