Pella is a small village very close to the Orange River (The Border between South Africa and Namibia), Pella started out as a mission station and today desipite the very beautiful church and rich history of the area it is also known for these "red Quartz" or "Fire Quartz". This is a very old spceimen from the early days of the mad rush up there to find these red quartz crystals on white quartz matrix. Note it has not been cleaned with acid as yet, we felt in unnecesary however it can still be done to increase the contrast of red against white. estimated packed shipping weight +/- 300gr.
