Jan Coetzee Mine in South Africa
Chlorite in Quartz comes from many regions across the globe. Bright Green solid phantoms in water clear quartz are not very common, but highly sought after! Chlorite Quartz is usually found in alpine deposits, which also are known for producing odd habits and formations.
Mineral exploration in South Africa has been thriving for centuries! Although rich in a diversity of industrial minerals, specimen mining in South Africa is actually not as prevalent as one would expect. Diamonds, Gold, Manganese, etc are the main focus. But there are a few deposits worthy of noting that have produced over the years. The Kalahari Manganese field provides for the greatest amount of diversity, the Cactus Quartz deposit produces volume in Quartz, and the Messina Copper district produces some of the finest included Quartzes in the world! While many specimens are surely there to find, bureaucracy makes South Africa a challenging country to mine for specimens.
