How would you like this crystal on your finger?!
One huge piece of Quartz...well a cluster of crystals really, but that is so impressive to see up close.
Until you wander through all the huge, well laid out and very impressive collections at The Crystal Gallery in Swakopmund, you will not fully comprehend the extensive range of precious and sem-precious gemstones Namibia is famous for. I knew they had a big diamond industry, but the country is also rich in other minerals; tourmaline, topaz, garnet, rutile, quartz to name a few; Namibia is a gem hunter's paradise.
Monster sized crystals.
A wide range of minerals and gemstones.
You can buy from their extensive and varied offerings. This Herero woman selects and strings a range of gemstones. Her distinctive headwear is folded to simulate the horns of a cattle beast.
