Two massive rockfaces on the grounds of Rooisand Desert Ranch attract a wide variety of indigenous birds for nesting.
Rooisand Minerals
Farm Rooisand has several sites where beautiful minerals can be found - quartz, smoky quartz, amethyst and others. Rooisand also boasts some deposits where a very rare type of amethyst occurs. Its colour - like that of ordinary amethyst - is a grape purple, but this turns into hues of green and yellow after several days' exposure to sunlight.
