Mineral World – Scratch Patch

Almost half of the world’s gemstones can be found in Southern Africa, giving this region the nickname, “the gemstone capital.” Sink your hand into the cool patch of polished gemstones and search for your favourites at the exciting Scratch Patch or visit the Mineral World shop for an incredible range of gemstone items – from affordable souvenirs to collector’s items and investment gems.

There is a Mineral World and Scratch Patch in both Simon’s Town and the V&A Waterfront. The former being the original Scratch Patch and the Topstones factory, and the latter including a fun mini golf course and easy access to the Mother City’s premier shopping destination.
