A 30 minute tour in a replica of a real mine!!
Mapatiza offers on site a short underground mine tour of a replica combination of their company owned mines in Africa. This is a unique experience that takes learners through the life of a gemstone. From where it is mined to how it is sized and polished. Their popular stones are Amethyst, Citrine, Peridot, Garnet, Topaz, Tanzanite, Sapphire, Turquoise, Aquamarine, Agate, Carnelian, Jasper, Onyx, Crystal Quarts, Rose Quartz, Diamonds, Obsidian, Ruby, Emerald,Tourmaline, Opal, Zircon and South Africa's very own Tiger's Eye. This tour will help Secondary School learners with their Geological projects. A tour through the showroom of the juwellery made from these stones are also included. For Primary Schools this can be a fun, educational tour. At an extra cost they can get a scratch patch experience which let them choose gemstones which they can take home and also pedal cars to keep them busy while the other group of the learners are busy with their mine tour. The tour includes a complimentary packet of stones to take home as a souvenir.
