1 A CAKTUSQUARZ xx

AMETHYST – CACTUS QUARTZ

Boekenhouthock in Bushweld , Pretoria is the famous locality of the quartz variety.

Multiple quartz – growth generations result in these spectacular levels.

15 years ago the first pieces were found near the surface in 1 – 2 meters depth, there was directly a run on this new ‘quartz variety. However, the pieces tended to be small or single crystals in whitefl or coloured yellow or purple with iron ions. Nowadays, these easily accessible sites have been completely cleared out for a long time. Today, in order to get to good pieces, one has to dig 40 – 50 meters deep, which logically makes this material much more expensive.
