Fairy Quartz Cluster, .95 lb, Boukenhoetshoek, Mpumulanga, South Africa
Nharo makes regular trips to South Africa as we visit the region. As with the other countries in the region there is a spectacular wealth of minerals.
Fairy Quartz is dug up by small scale miners near Boukenhoutshoek in the Mpumulanga Province. This is the same site as Spirit/Cactus Quartz. Fairy quartz differs from these in that it has a fine druzy coating where the cactus has larger points in the secondary growth over the original quartz crystal.
