Gecko Jewellers and Mapatiza Mine
Imagine finding actual gems at a Joburg Gem? This was the case when the Suzuki 947 Crew visited Gecko Jewellers and Mapatiza Mine in Midrand; a true hidden gem at the heart of Joburg.
Gecko Jewellers offers a wide range of designer jewellery mined at their own company mine. The most fascinating element of Gecko Jewellers is that is has replicated one of their mines, the Mapatiza Mine on site. Underground, one can find rose quarts, crystals, tanzanite and amethysts. Once the gemstones have been mined, they are moved to the sorting machine according to their size.
Once sorted, the polished gemstones are then cut and displayed in the showroom which is the biggest showroom not only in South Africa, but in Africa. Once the tour is over, the entire family can enjoy some downtime at the scratch patch as well as grab a snack at the café.
