About us

Cape Minerals is a gemstone and mineral trading concern, officially opened in the latter part of 2016, to facilitate the trade and distribution of both specimens and knowledge from deposits primarily within Southern Africa to mineral collectors worldwide.

With over 50 years of combined experience in mineral specimens, we present to the collector a wide range of rare and exotic minerals from Southern Africa, as well as premier international specimens that have been hiding in old collections for decades.

For international and local collectors alike we can be contacted for speciality requests and information. We also offer bulk sales and mineral collection purchases or valuations within South Africa. 

Our passion lies in the growth of information regarding old and current deposits and the future development of hobbyists worldwide – To this end we invite you to browse our website and follow us on Facebook for new and exciting updates, or join our monthly mailing list.

Please feel free to get in touch with us if you have specific requests, a collection you would like to sell or are coming to South Africa - We are always interested in meeting international collectors.

Our company geologist also sources on request (where possible) geological samples from Southern Africa for teaching and display collections.
