Fairy Quartz Cluster, 1.6 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.
