What You Can’t Find, You Can Buy

Namibia was a big surprise for me. I’ve always loved collecting rocks (along with coins) and I didn’t know before we came here that Namibia has more different rocks and minerals than almost any other country in the world. We spent a day rockhounding around the Spitzkoppe mountain and visited the Kristall Galery in Swakopmund, a museum and store dedicated to rocks and gems. My dad told me that when he was little, he and his grandpa liked to collect rocks in the mountains of Utah and then take them home and tumble and polish them.
