Scratch Patch and Mineral World (Waterfront)


A visit to the Scratch Patch is great fun for children (and adults too) as you pick and choose from the masses of brightly coloured gemstones. The original Scratch Patch was started in Simon’s Town in 1970, and there is now also a Scratch Patch in the V&A Waterfront. Buy a packet or tub to fill with a wide variety of tumble-polished gemstones, mostly popular Southern African stones, such as Tiger’s Eye, Rose Quartz, Amethyst, Jasper, Agates and Crystals.

V&A Waterfront open daily from 9am to 6pm. For further details, visit
