Does anyone know of a gemstone mine in southern Africa that is open to the public, and for a fee allows visitors to search for stones? My 79 yo mother enjoyed fossicking for opals in Australia, and we are looking for a similar experience in Africa. Our goal is for an afternoon of fun rather than trying to unearth the next Millennium Star. Thanks.
