Gem Buying in Namibia


#1

I will be visiting Windhoek, Namibia in the next month and wondered
if anyone could recommend a reputable gem dealer that I can buy
semi-precious cabochons from?

Thanks,
Sarah

Hi Sarah,

I’ve assisted with a gem operation in Namibia that started back in
1999. Even though Namibia is a producing country - especially for
Tourmaline, Aquamarine and some rare Garnets - it is not known for
lapidary or gem cutting. If you email me privately, I can place you
in contact with two gentleman who may be willing to assist you while
in the country. One is based in Windhoek, the other is in Omaruru.
