Brandberg Hemitite Included Quartz, Brandberg quartz, Goboboseb Mountain Quartz From Africa
This listing is for Brandberg Goboboseb Mountain Quartz. This would be great for pendants or a collector as this is a special and rare crystal.
Brandberg Amethyst is named for the soaring mass of granite known as “The Brandberg,” Namibia’s highest mountain located in Damaraland in the northwest Namib Desert near the coast. Rising from the desert, this dome-shaped massif can be seen for miles, and viewed from space reveals a perfect circular form. The name Brandberg is Afrikaans, Dutch and German for “Fire Mountain” and comes from the effect of the setting sun on the western slope which sometimes causes a vibrant orange glow. Called “Burning Mountain” by the indigenous Damara people, and “Mountain of the gods” by the Herero, The Brandberg is considered sacred, a spiritual site of great significance to the San (Bushmen) tribes who sheltered there and rendered over 48,000 paintings and engravings within its caves and overhanging rocks.
Brandberg crystals are found only in the Brandberg area and nearby Goboboseb Mountains, an inhospitable and dry section of the Namib, the world’s oldest desert.
