Brandberg Quartz is unique to Namibia. They are named because of the mountain range they are found in. Brandberg Mountain is located in Damaraland, in the northwestern Namib Desert, near the coast. Brandberg crystals are all mined by hand without the use of any power tools or excavation machines. They are found in beds near to the surface. Compared with normal quartz, Brandbergs don't get that large. Brandbergs over 2 inches are rare.
They are most prized for their super glassy sides, stunning clarity, Amethyst and Smoky phantoms filled interiors. They often have Enhydros, Rainbows and Lepidocrocite which makes them almost playful and just adds to their magic. Then some have Goethite, even Epidote. Even the crystals that are not so glassy on the outside can have the most amazing inner worlds.
