Mineral World – Scratch Patch
Thousands of tumble-polished gemstones generate a lot of excitment among young children, who can spend a long time sorting throught the different stones, picking up smooth and shiny tiger's eye, translucent rose quartz, jasper and crystals.
Children and adults alike go to the Scratch Patch to sort through stones, sometimes finding exotic ones like lapis lazuli and blue lace agate. The original Scratch Patch, open since 1970, is in Simon's Town, and the second store is at the V&A Waterfront.
The Scratch Patch is part of Mineral World, which uses gemstones to makes items like jewellery, souvenirs, ornaments and pendants.
