PRODUCT INFORMATION


General Description

Brand New Discovery from Kwaggafontein, Mpumalanga, South Africa: This extraordinary material hails from the quaint town of Kwaggafontein, nestled in the heart of Mpumalanga, South Africa. A region rich in geological wonders, it unveils a captivating gemstone with a fascinating history. In ancient times, the Romans bestowed the name "Amethyst" upon this gem, derived from "Amethystos," meaning "Not Drunk." The legend held that by wearing a piece in one's mouth or as a pendant, one could indulge in libations all night without suffering a dreaded hangover. It's a testament to the enduring fascination with Amethyst's unique qualities. Sourced from the spirit quartz-bearing deposits of North Western South Africa, this gemstone boasts a deep and intense colour, characterized by its rich, beautiful hues and, more often than not, gem-like clarity. While it's distinct from spirit quartz, its inherent beauty and affordability make it a captivating choice for collectors and enthusiasts alike. This remarkable find represents a new resource that we aim to make readily available at a reasonable price, inviting all to explore its enchanting qualities. Price is grade dependant. Items are as shown.
