Beautiful Pierre! Those are among the clearest and sharpest crystals you've found on your many outings. Congratulations.

Thank you Franjungle!

True Chris, we have found (over the years) a number as clear, but I cannot remember ever finding a pocket with so many of this quality. There are also many small ones that are gem quality.

Yesterday was a cold and miserable day, but that did not put me off driving out to a remote farm to take a walk in the hills. The purpose was twofold, to look for crystals and to see if I could find a hammer and chisel I left somewhere. I parked the car at the foot of a hill and walked to the other side where there is a small gorge. As I was descending into the gorge, I noticed a few spots on a large quartz seam that looked promising. I did not expect much, but after turning a rock over that was full of crystals, I found a nice pocket in the ground just underneath it that yielded a few kg. of crystals. I found the hammer and chisel and also fell, hurting my knee. All in all it was a pleasant outing despite the fall and cold weather. Here are just a few pictures.

Last week, I took a few days off and drove to one of my favourite destinations, an apple farm in Villiersdorp. The purpose was to further explore a new quartz pocket I found and to enjoy the lovely nature and weather.
The first day I spent at the new find and removed a few kg of these strange quartz crystals with an unknown black mineral. How time flies when you remove crystals. Darkness came all too soon. The next day, I spent another few hours at the quartz pocket and then took a walk around the huge farm. I found some crystals in a clay wall and some smaller crystals in other areas. The next morning, I spent about an hour searching for crystals and then headed home. What a wonderful and fulfilling trip.

PostPosted: Aug 17, 2018 15:56    Post subject: Re: Quartz collecting outings in South Africa  

Last week, Thursday, I drove out to the Tankwa Karoo to visit a small roadside quarry to look for calcite, gypsum and quartz specimens. I had a delightful 2 half days and a peaceful nights sleep; but my trip was disturbed by a young man who decided to take his 4x4 off the road and into the quarry where he got stuck in the mud. I lost hours trying to help him get out but finally drove about 45 km to find help (which I fortunately did). The rest of my trip was ruined as I still wanted to visit another place, but time was up as I had to be back at a certain time, so I decided to head back home. Here is a few pictures (none of the 4x4 in the mud).

PostPosted: Sep 09, 2018 12:50    Post subject: Re: Quartz collecting outings in South Africa  

Yesterday,as with most Saturdays, I took a drive to a remote farm and walked about 3 km to an area that I have only visited once before. There was a slope where some small quartz crystals washed out from higher up. I soon found the place where they came from. I turned a large rock over and found it to be full of small crystals underneath. In the ground underneath the large stone, I removed many crystals and plates of crystals; most two sided. There where still some snow on the mountains from a good snowfall a week ago and the wind was blowing cold. When I got back to the car and started to drive, I noted that it was 3 degrees Celsius.
I only cleaned a few specimens with water and hope to show some once they have been cleaned. Note they are still full of roots.

Hi friend Joan, thank you! The specimens have been in the acid for a few days and I hope to clean them soon and show a few. This pocket yielded fascinating specimens and I am really excited to see the cleaned pieces. Best regards :-)

Many thanks for sharing your field collecting photos. I have family and friends in South Africa who constantly tell me about just how beautiful the Cape can be.

Have you ever had an opportunity to visit Orania? It is a truly remarkable place, and highlights the industry and intellect of the Afrikaan people. It is an oasis in the desert and from the air you can see this little green jewel for miles, as it contrasts with the arid land that surrounds it.

Good work Pierre. My hat goes off to any field collector – hard work with problematic results. You scored well and should be proud of your efforts.

Hi RA, thank you! I have never been to Orania, but as I understand, it is a well managed community. The Western Cape is indeed a unique and beautiful place. I have taken a number of overseas visitors on trips around the Cape and the reaction is always the same; they are overwhelmed. Kind regards.
