This specimen comes from an OLD STOCK Collection belonging to "Buck" Donald Keller Jr. Buck Keller was from Mechanicsville, Maryland and was an avid rock collector up until his death in August 2013. If available the specimen will come with the original tag made by Buck Keller. We are not responsible for any labeling that may be attached to the rock.
Namibia possesses Africa's most developed mineral culture. The amount of detail given to collect specimens without damage, and to understand the value (as opposed to the many gem-rough communities across Africa who do not understand the need for such care), has given Namibia a unique opportunity to display a full range of specimens to the world, year after year! Africa has many mining challenges but Namibia is rich with opportunity, and has been visited for specimen collecting by foreigners for over 100 years!
