Quartz (South Africa)
Noumas 1 Pegmatite, Vioolsdrift, Northern Cape, South Africa. 100mm x 80mm x 60mm.
The old Blesburg mine was the largest high grade Feldspar mine in the country, at it's peak a large pocket of these semi smokey quartz crystals on cleavlandite was exposed. We where fortunate enough to be there and this is a self collected specimen from the mine. The mine is now long closed and nothing is going to come from there any time soon again. Estimated packed shipping weight +/- 600gr.
