Mining and minerals are a large component of the South African economy. From large scale international mining consortiums to small one man operations. Below are links to various mining areas with pictures and information.
We have listed a few areas where we source interesting and unique crystals. Here you will find pictures and information on lesser known areas as well as a selection of crystals for sale.
We are concentrating on three provinces: Northern Cape, Western Cape and Mpumalanga (KwaNdebele).

a vast area that lies in the Northern Cape. It has a big variety
of quartz, with multi-coloured phantoms, smokies and red hematite
