|Okoruso Flourite Mine
Outjiwarongo , Namibia
|We stopped in Outjiwarongo and that town had a bad vibe . I wouldnt spend but a moment here ,
nothing longer than to fuel up .
We visited the Okoruso Fluorite mine . The company has a specimen shed and sells minerals that
the miners collect . The proceeds from these mineral sales goes into the miners entertainment fund
and purchases sports equipment and uniforms , and also toys for the miners children.

Outjiwarongo, Namibia. Specimen
pictures to be added later . I do have
some good Okoruso fluorite crystal
specimens for sale !
|We stayed at the Outjibamba lodge in
Outjiwarongo. The hotel was very nice . Internet
was slow and you couldnt use your own laptop .
They allowed you ten minutes on the hotel
computer to check email . I was told they were
going to have a internet room with wireless soon.
Food service was typically slow as to be expected.
I dined on Ostrich which was tough .

Okoruso Fluorite crystals. Note
