About this book

Language: English

A unique illustrated book about the most beautiful specimens ever to be found in Namibia. Seven years after the publication of the book Namibia by Ludi von Bezing, Rainer Bode and Steffen Jahn, a sought-after out-of-print books, the publisher presents an even better and even more beautiful new book: Namibia: Minerals and Localities, Volume 1

Featuring a completely new design and an enormous amount of new and stunning mineral photographs and new localities. Namibia is currently one of the most fascinating mineral-rich countries. Not only does the magnificent landscape draw people to this fabulous land in the south of Africa, but gem and mineral collectors are mesmerized by the extensive variety of exquisite stones.

This book will be issued in two volumes. Volume 1 will bring you some of the most attractive and finest specimens in the world – among the prettiest minerals ever to be found in Namibia. The book’s pictured specimens come from some of the most important and most famous museums and private collections of the world. Many of these specimens have never been presented to the public before. Many outstanding and incredible specimens from the famous Heini Soltau Collection in Lüderitz – a world sensation, second to none in perfection and aesthetics, and many yet unpublished. Once a well-kept secret, this new book now holds all these true mineralogical treasures.

Over 600 pages, this unique book presents you with the prettiest and most significant recently found specimens of stunning beauty from the Erongo Mountains, around the Spitzkoppe, the Goboboseb-Mountains, in Rosh Pinah and many others exciting localities. A large chapter is dedicated to the famous and traditional mining-town of Tsumeb – more outstanding pictures of beautiful specimens from collections all over the world turn this chapter into one of the most interesting parts of the book.

As a special: an enclosed DVD with an enthralling film about the hard life of the small miners in the Erongo Mountains. The dangerous life of the miners in search for nice crystals caught on DVD.
