When driving the desolate yet beautiful road towards the Cape Cross Seal Colony, you will find loads of little stands with rocks on display. At a closer look, it’s mostly rose quartz collected in the desert, and sold by locals.
It works on an honesty system, should you wish to buy something, the price is show and the cash can be placed in the tin. We never saw a soul, but I’m assuming the salesman comes past regularly to check. A stunning way to shop.
Rose Quartz is known as the ‘love stone’ and is said to emit the strong vibration of unconditional love, joy, warmth and healing.
